deleted item retention exchnage 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    newbie question....

    I am trying to enable a deleted item retention policy in 2007 but am unsure as to where and what i have to do

    Basically when people delete emails it is going to the deleted items... and it is just sitting there. How do i purge said emails after 60 days...

    After reading many posts i have found by doing following these instructions... this should sort me out

    Organization Configuration > Mailbox > Managed Default Folders. I created a Managed Content Settings item for the Deleted Items folder. I set it to perm delete after 60 days for any mail item placed in the folder. Action to be take at end of retention... (delete and allow recovery)

    Is this what i should be doing?

    thanks in advance

    Hi,
    Yes, you seems to have done half the job. Now its time for you to create a ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy that you will assign to the users that will do the deletion.

    Neil Hobson has written a good blog post about this that I recommend that you have a look at.
