Change SBS 2008 Default Calendar retention

Hi-
How can I change an SBS 2008 server (running Ex2007) to retain all calendar items for more than 6 months (possibly up to 1 year or longer)? The president of one of my client's would like to go back farther into her calendar (to January or further back) in her Calendar. I already told her that we cannot get the data she is seeking from earlier this (or can we?), but would love to know how to increase the calendar retention time on the mail/information store going forward.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Brian

There are no settings to restrict the calendar or any other folder for that matter on an Exchange server unless they have been manually configured by the System Administrator.

You may find that Outlook AutoArchive is set and archiving old data to an Archive.pst file, so check the client for .pst files and AutoArchive Settings.
