Update to Get-UserHoldPolicies — Now includes DelayHoldApplied

This is just a quick update–if you’ve been using my Get-UserHoldPolicies script to check out the holds applied to your mailboxes, I’ve updated it to include the DelayHoldApplied property.

Update to the Get-UserHoldPolicies Tool

A new year, a new update for Get-UserHoldPolicies!  Woo!

    • Delete only
    • Do nothing after retention period
    • Delete after retention period
