  • Hi Alan,

    If you want to clean up the Deleted Items folder of all mailboxes, you can use retention tags/retention policies to accomplish this. See the following article for more details:

    Default folders that support Retention Policy Tags

    Besides, since this forum focuses more on questions related to Microsoft Outlook desktop application, if you need further assistance on retention tags/policies, you can post a new question to the dedicated Exchange forum. Thank you for the understanding and support.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Steve Fan
