My company has decided that they want to start enforcing a 90 day maximum email retention policy.  That is, any email older than 90 days would automatically be deleted by the email server.  I am running one Exchange 2003 server servicing about 85 users.  All of the clients are running either Outlook 03 or 07 on Windows XP Professional PCs.  Is there a way to do this?

Yes.  In ESM, select recipients, and recipient policies.  Right click your default mailbox policy and select change property pages.  Select mailbox management.  Now right click the policy and select propoerties.  Click mailbox manager settings tab and set your appropriate vaules.

Also, right click on all the Exchange servers you wish to do this on and select properties, then mailbox management tab and make sure it is scheduled to run at least once off hours.
