Exchange 2007 Multiple retention times on default managed folders (Message Records Management)
Posted on 2009-07-10
I am migrating to Exchange 2007 and am not sure if I am missing something or if the message records management is just not as flexible as the recipient policies in Exchange 2003. I have a handful of Exchange 2003 mailboxes that have different recipient policies to clean them out. Some clean out deleted items immediately, some have 30 days, and some clean out different folders. My point being that they have different retentions on the same folders.
In Exchange 2007 from what I can see you can only set 1 retention policy per default managed folder per mailbox item type. Is there a way that I can have one mailbox that gets rid of deleted items automatically after 30 days and another mailbox that cleans deleted items after 5 days? I don't see how to do this with Message Records management unless I am misunderstanding how it works.
Can someone verify this for me, and if it can't be done this way with Message Records management is there another method I could use for these one-off mailboxes that need to be automatically cleaned up with different retentions?
