Clean mailbox for certain attachment types RRS feed

  • Question

  • We just implemented a VoIP system that has the capability to deliver voicemail to our Inboxes. The question has come up if there is a way to remove the voicemail attachments after so many days (these are saved as MP3 files). I have looked into the Records Management for our Exchange 2007 server but I cannot find a solution. Is there a way to remove attachments that are MP3 that are 'x' number days old?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Jeff,

    Do you mean you just want to remove the mp3 file attachments?
    We could use the MRM to remove the item based on the age of the item.

  • Hi Jeff,

    I know you are only want to delete MP3 attachment and not a mail, But if you want to delete mail item, You can use Export-Mailbox with -AttachmentFilenames and –DeleteContent switches to delete messages from all the mailboxes. You can dump all mail item in a target mailbox.

    Reference:

    Exchange Server 2007 Export Mailbox task

  • I did look at using MRM (and the suggested tutorial) to do this but it looks like I could only remove mail based on age. I want to be able to remove based on attachment type and age.

  • Hi Jeff,

    Sure, MRM just could used based on age.
    As ANil's referred, we could schedule a task to run the script to achieve your target.
