I am playing with Exchange 2010 SP1 Beta, I can see a strange issue with the retention tags, to re-produce it follow the steps:
1- Create a retention tag and select inbox as a folder, assign any date and action move to archive.
you get the error
Summary: 1 item(s). 0 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:00:00
Unable to execute the task, reason: MoveToArchive can only be applied to tags of type default ('All'), Personal or RecoverableItems.

Exchange Management Shell command attempted:
New-RetentionPolicyTag -Name '3434' -Type 'Inbox' -Comment '' -AgeLimitForRetention '33.00:00:00' -RetentionAction 'MoveToArchive' -RetentionEnabled $true
Elapsed Time: 00:00:00
now try this:
2_ create another policy that deletes the items, assign it to inbox.
3- now go edit the action and change it to move to archive, it completes with now errors
what I can see that there is a bug with the EMC and creating a new retention tag, I think that I should have the ability to create a renetion tag to inbox, personal folder or any folder, so why it gives the error.
