Exchange 2003 archive/delete not fully deleting
Posted on 2009-04-29
My DB is getting large so I am archiving some retired users. Deleted item retention =0 days for these users, but archived email appears to move to deleted items space on server when viewing mailboxes in system manager. Even though a large amount shows as deleted items, these emails can not be recovered using "recover deleted items." However, emptied deleted items go immediately off of the server. Why does archived mail stay on server? Will it go off in 7 days? Can I make it go faster for the next users archived?
