Once upon a time, the GW POA read the server hardware time to get it's time.
It's a long shot, but might be worth checking...

Can you archive them? create a GW archive for user in ? and see if they
will archive. If it does, then un-archive it and test?

Hi Stephen,

Tried that and it would still say cannot expire..which is really really
realy weird for me..

>>> "Stephen Hesser" <shesser at arandpartners.com> 2019/10/09 15:40 >>>
Do you need to set the user account for retention under user-client
options-retention? If so, disable it, delete said emails and re-enable
it?

Good Morning all,

A user reported this morning that some of her very very very old email
dont want to delete as they were not achieved yet.. so we all know we
come across those emails that retain will just not archive .. these
are
email from a few years back (how she only she that now i dont know) ..
so anyway i would like to removed these from her mailbox (trash) ..
but
gwcheck with bypassrerention or the bypass_retention simply does
nothing
...  . removed it from the job and it list those about 40 or so.. put
it
back in the job to run nothing really happens just states the trash is
set to expire older than 3 days .. i copy the two result logs in here
please anybody?
