Exchange 2003 & Outlook 2003

We have at least one user who is purposely DE-selecting "Save sent message to:" and therefore the message is not saved anywhere (that we can find) in her mailbox.

I would like to put a global policy in place that would force all Sent messages to automatically be saved into the Sent Items folder for a MINIMUM of xx days after which it would continue to be subject to our Mail Management Recipient Policy for the Sent Items folder.

TIA for any suggestions.

I am looking into a way to prevent the users from modifying the email option in Outlook.  Something else to consider is using the message tracking center in ESM.  The user has no way of controlling this content.  As a minimum you would see the number or messages who they went to and the subject of the message.

I will follow up if I find a way to do exactly what you are asking.

cheers

this looks like a pretty useful web page from MS talking about custom installs

The only reliable way to enforce this is to do it at the server end (as already suggested by a2the6th).

Thank you for your responses.  We will find out in the next week or so if the the link provided by A2the6th will allow us to do what we are looking for.  At quick review it may not have the specifics we require to  both force at roll-out AND prohibit the end user from making changes after the roll-out.

How do I assign 125 points to A2the6th and 125 back to me kigit; as the solution wasn't 100% what we needed, but the attempt.

Thanks,
