Is there anyway to limit the number of Sent items in a user's "Sent Folder" or delete by Date?  i.e. A user has 4,000 sent items, never deletes ANY, I would like to be able to set a policy that would only "KEEP" sent items for say 90 days.  I would like to set this in Exchange/AD.  We have Win2K server and Exchange 2000.  All users have Win2k workstations.  

I would like to say this is the BEST website for help!

Mailbox manager.
Test by generating a report first before you implement deleting the messages though.

ESM, Recipients, Recipients Policies. Right click on "Default Policy" and choose "Change Properties Pages". Enable "Mailbox Manager Settings".
Then right click on Default Policy again and choose Properties.
"Mailbox Manager Settings (Policy)" should be one of the tabs.

First before I do this, after I click on "Mailbox Mangager Settings" then what will happen?  

Generating a report?

Nothing will happen if you don't apply any of the settings.
The settings are then controlled by the "Mailbox Management" process tab which is accessed by Right click on the server in ESM and choosing Properties.

Have a look at this brief tutorial: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF012.html

Thanks Sembee I give you 500 points.  This makes it much clearer.  I wanted to set this restrictions up 2 years ago when we first went from GroupWise to Exchange but my boss at the time nixed the idea.  Now I have a new boss and I think it is time to get some rules in place for our users.  Thank you so much.
