Deny users the right to delete mail. I am required to ensure that all the users bar the 'directors' are able to delete mail for the users mailboxes! The LAN consists of W2K and Exchange 2000 sp3 with Outlook clients. Do I do this on the Outlook OR Exchange and how?? thanks

Try the following.
First enable "Advanced Features" in Active Directory Users and Computers.
Double click the user whom you want to change.Then go to "Exchange Advanced" -> "Mailbox Rights".
Change the permissions as you need.

I have tried this previously, I have denied the 'everyone' and 'self'  the "delete mailbox storage". Closed Outlook, logged said user off and logged on & re-opened Outlook and yet I can still delete mail and empty the deleted mail folder. The test user in question is only a member of users group and a global security group (I think it was intended to be a distribution group). Much obliged

Go to Advanced ( At the right windows)
Then click "View/Edit" Remove the user "Full mailbox access".

Go to ur outlook(the user)right click on each folder lets say inbox or delered item folders then permissions and make sure that user does not have the delete permission enabled.That is where u can pick and choose what each user may or may not do with that specific folder.Call back if it did not work.

Correct me if I'm wrong guys, but if you take off the "delete" permission, won't that disable the ability of rules moving messages to other folders? A "move" is as good as a "delete", right?

Yes but he only wants directors to have that permission and users just to view items.What is wrong with that?In each folder in ur mailbox u can grant diff permission to diff users(or groups).Kidego u are absloutly right that user wont be able to move anything from that folder that DELETE is not allowed.

Nothing wrong I don't suppose. Just seems a backwards request. If you want to make sure you have everything, set your deleted item retention times, and set the dumpsteralwayson=1 reg key. alternately, enable journaling. Yea, setting perms may indeed work, but I feel that it may hinder some functionality going forward that they may not want to lose. Unknown behavior.

And why fix it till mailbox rules don't work? Just sounds odd, that's all.
