Deleting items from Deleted Items

hiya. me again.

If people are emptying their deleted items folders in their outlook(s); is that deleting the mail permanently? Or does it go to some special place on the server where at some later date we can retrieve the items?

the emails goes into the dumpster is it has been configured. you can check the same by checking the limits tab on the mailbox store via esm and then checking the retention period option

right so the default is 7 days.  How does anyone feel about leaving that set-up for like -- 400 days?? so it saves deleted items for over a year - for posterity -- or is that a serious nightmare?
