I have about 300 client PCs running Outlook 2007 in Cached Exchange Mode connected to an Exchange 2003 server. As expected, machines will occasionally/randomly generate items in their Sync Issues folder as well as the 3 subfolders in Outlook:
In addition to taking up space, the Sync Issues also happen to cause problems with my Veritas Backup Exec during brick level backups of the Exchange store.
I'd like a way to be able to centrally delete all items in the 4 folders mentioned above on all the Exchange accounts without having to open each user's mailbox and manually deleting the items or relying on the users to do this regularly. I've experimented with using the Mailbox Management program on the Exchange server, but can't figure out the right settings to make it work. Maybe it isn't possible with that tool. Another Expert's post talks about creating an Outlook macro, but it seems to have to be loaded on all the client PCs:
I've used a program called Discover Attender from Sherpa Software. It does the job perfectly by scanning all the mailboxes and presenting results, but it costs $2,000.
Are there any ways to take care of these mail items centrally as an administrator?
