We are trying to use a recipient policy that run against a single account and delete mail in that mailbox that is older than 30 days.

So far we have tried everything we can think of, but each time the policy run, it's deleting mail from everyone's mailbox.

How can we limit the scope of a recipient policy to only run against one mailbox/user?

This is the recipient policy that we currently have set.  We thought it would only run against users whos displayname starts with csg, but it is in fact running against all mailboxes.

(&(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(homeMDB=CN=Mailbox Store (SBS2003-TEST),CN=First Storage Group,CN=InformationStore,CN=SBS2003-TEST,CN=Servers,CN=first administrative group,CN=Administrative Groups,CN=LEGALTEST,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=LegalTest,DC=local)) )))(objectCategory=user)(displayName=csg*)))


Thank you for the help.

When you are creating the Recipient Policy.  I am assuming you selected mailbox manager, then clicked modify at the bottom.  Once you are in this window, it appears much the same as ADUC.  Be sure to click find now, that will display all the users that it SHOULD be modifying.  If it displays a lot, it is reasonable to assume you should look for another filter for your query.

Now, if only this user comes up in your modified query, you should be fine.  If no users are in your query, you will want to change your filter.

If only this user shows up in the query, and you have verified, what version of Exchange SP on what OS platform?

thank you
