We are running office 2003 sp2 with all applicable service packs and patches. This should be fairly simple. Is there a way in outlook to set an option on the deleted items folder so that any mail older than seven days is automatically deleted?

I am not talking about the 7 day recovery period for deleted items I want to know is there a way to set it so that people cant use their Deleted Items folder as a storage container. I saw the option to have outlook automatically empty deleted items up exiting but that does all emails. Is there a way to set a limit on this.

Also is this something that can be managed through group policy.
