When dealing with retention policy, how does my Barracuda Message Archiver calculate message lifespan?

Solution #00003423

Scope:
All Barracuda Message Archivers, all firmware versions.

Answer:
The Barracuda Message Archiver's retention policy looks at the date that the mail message was originally sent, and not by the date the message was archived. This means that when older emails are imported into a Barracuda Message Archiver, if their age exceeds the retention policy limit, they will be immediately discarded; they will not remain on the Barracuda Message Archiver for the retention policy's length of time.
