Question on Deleted Item retention
Posted on 2009-12-16
We are running Exchange 2003 SP2, but I am confused about the Deleted Item retension policies.
Under Recipient Policies > Mailbox Manager settings > Properties
There is a setting to move 'Deleted Items' older than 7 days to the Deleted Items folder. This is applied to all Mailbox Servers.
However, we also have a Mailbox Store policy applied to some mailbox stores that says "keep deleted items for 10 days"
Which one takes precedence? Also, I see that you can set the Deleted Item retention on the ADUC account of a user...does this override the previous? And is the user able to manually set the setting via the Outlook Inbox?
