Hi everyone,

I need to know if there is a way (via policy, or reg edit or similar) from preventing users emptying their deleted items in outlook 2010 running on exchange 2003 SP2.

I am aware of journalling and a rention policy but I need someone who monitors other users mailboxes to be able to quickly check deleted items without having to go through a large procedure.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks.

Outlook 2010 as well as previous version, you can mount other users mailboxes onto your profile and check their deleted items. This would require you to give yourself permissions on the user's mailbox. After that you can add their mailbox on your profile and check their deleted items folder with out the user knowing.

Are user's mailboxes cached?

I think Journaling and Archiving are your only options.

Your only other option would be to every night run exmerge to PST with the 'recover items from dumpster' option and then setup the filter so it only gives 1 day of mail

I prefer the journaling option though

Thanks for all the comments, the guy looking at the mailboxes is not techy at all he just asked me to stop them being able to 'empty deleted items' but I think I will have to come up with another plan...

the mailboxes are not cached - but could be?

Hi Alexbuckland,

As well as Jounaling and Archiving there are third party solutions. This might be something to consider.

Seriously use journalling, that is what it is for. Compliance. Then you can keep all messages sent or received for x years.
