exchsrvr\imcdata\in\archive directory

We are running several Exchange 5.5 servers on NT Server 4.0.    We are using the Internet Mail Connector for smtp mail.

under the imcdata directory there are directories for messages IN and OUT that have archive directories with megabytes of files.   It doesn't appear to be every message ever sent or received, but they do go back a couple of years, and consume alot of space.  


Can I delete the files in these directories?  

Is there a configuration screen somewhere in MS Exchange Administrator that controls the retention of the files in these directories?   I don't see it.   There are controls for public and private folders, and user's mailboxes.

thanks in advance

you can delete these files.  You can undo future archiving under Connectors/Internet Mail Service (Connector)/Properties/Diagnostic Logging/
Message Archival - set this in Minimum.
