I am trying to find my companies policy for the amount of time messages will stay in the recover deleted items folder before they are actually deleted.  I have been told that I can get ot this information through the exchange system manager but cannot find where this is set.  Thanks.

    In system manager expand ...
    domainname (servername)
          Administrative Groups
              First Administrative Group
                          first storage group
    Right click on mailbox store and click properties
    Choose the Limits tab
    there you should see the "deletion settings"
