We're migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007.  There are some significant differences in they way that retention policies work between these two versions of Exchange.  I need to determine who has custom folders under their inbox - we need to tell these users to move these folders up one level so that retention policies will work properly.  Is there a way I can use the 2007 Exchange Management Shell, or any other utility or tool, to determine who has folders under their inbox?

Software/Hardware used:
Exchange 2003, Exchange 2007

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We have Exchange 2007 and there has been no issue with retention policies being applied to all sub folders users have created themselves. “Custom folders” as defined by Exchange 2007 are folders the Exchange admin creates and are applied to ALL mailboxes. Those customer folders can have different retention policies applied to them. We created a “custom folder” for long term mail users don’t want deleted. But folders users create themselves aren’t actually “custom folders” for which a separate retention policy is needed.
