Exchange 2010 Public Folder content age limit Question

    Question

  • I am getting ready to roll out retention policy at my company.

    I have been asked to also include public folders contents, but not the Public folders themselves..

    It this possible in Exchange 2010?

    Is it the age limit setting?

     

    Please help.

  • Retention in Exchange is powered by Messaging Records Management.  MRM only applies to mailboxes.

    One might get creative with scripts or journaling, but there is no native functionality AFAIK.

    You might explore 3rd party archive solutions.

    I guess it depends on how you whant to enforce the age limits on the
    folder contents.
     
    You can set a default age limit on folder contents at the public
    folder store. That applies to everything . . . unless
     
    You set an AgeLimit on the individual public folder. That supercedes
    the age limit from the store and applies to all replicas of the public
    folder . . . unless
     
    You set LocalReplicaAgeLimit on individual replicas of the public
    folder. That supercedes the AgeLimit from the folder.

    Age limits have worked in Exchange public folders for a long, long,
    time.

  • Rich, thanks.  I was referring to "content" of PF's as stated in the OP.  It seemed Denise wasn't looking to lose the whole folder.
