We are running Exchange 2003 Std SP2 on W2k3 Std and I have a question relating to Deletion Settings.
I am looking to purge items from users mailbox deleted items folder which are older than x days.
Our Mailbox Store properties with ESM are configured to:
Keep deleted items for 5 days
Keep deleted mailboxes for 30 days
Despite these settings, it appears that deleted items are not being purges from mailboxes. I have checked the user records in AD and each user is configured to the mailbox store defaults. Within ESM, the Mailbox Management process is configured to run weekly on Saturday at midnight.
Am I missing something? Is there another maintenance process which needs to be enabled?
Should I be using an Mailbox Store System Policy to apply this, rather than the Mailbox Store - Limits properties?
