Junk Email folder auto clean out

Posted on 2006-05-25

Is there a way to set an auto clean of the Junk email folder on each users desktop through Exchange? I have a spam filter program that forwards these emails to the Junk Email folder and it gets large pretty quick. At this time I'm depending on the end user to clean out that folder and that is not happening.

I'm running Exchange 2003 and each of my users have Outlook 2003.

    I believe you should be able to do this with receipient policies.

    System Manager/Receipient/Receipient Policies.

    Right click and add new receipient policy then modify the settings, apply then enable the policy.
    You will also have to enable mailbox management process on the mailbox management tab which is located on your server(properties).

    PS:  I can't remember right off hand if the junk email folder is in there or not.

    Oh yeah, I've already got this done this, forgot about that option. It has an "All other mail folders" choice so I guess that will get the junk mail folder. We'll see. Thanks for the quick response.
