Hi,

I need to have a script running on an Exchange server that will periodically clean out my 'sent box' older than 14 days OR keep it at a fixed size and do continuous maintenance. Any idea where to start with this? This has to happen in a completly automated fashion and Outlook should remain closed on my side (user's side).

Mailbox Manager on the Exchange Server-side should be sufficient to achieve this. You simply need to configure it to clear out the Sent Items after x number of days.

See http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/mf012.html for a guide on setting it up. (It's Exchange 2000 but works on Exchange 2003 too - you haven't said which version you have!).

Thanks for your reply tigermatt.
I am not the administrator of the Exchange Server, I only have a mailbox that sends out automatic emails. Is there a way to get this cleaned out from my client side?

There isn't any method of doing it easily, particularly since one of your criterion states you want Outlook to remain closed at the client-side. If nothing can be done Exchange-wise, and you aren't going to be connected to Exchange when you want this to run (by having Outlook open), then there's absolutely no method of doing it automatically.

It probably wouldn't be feasible, but perhaps you could have a word with the Exchange admin and ask them to set up mailbox management server-side. They should understand, particularly if this is an automated mailbox which you can't check.
