How to empty a users outlook 2010 deleted items folder before applying a "deleted items retention policy"
Posted on 2011-03-07
We have Exchange 2010 and Office 2010. Objective: Empty all deleted items from a user’s deleted folder and Apply a “1 day retention policy” to the user deleted items folder. I have created the 1 day policy, but the problem lies in emptying the deleted items folder. The policy will only start from the date that it is applied to the email box. I have created a GPO to “Empty the deleted items upon exiting” but it prompts the user to say Yes or No. Does anyone know of a way to empty the deleted folder without prompting the user? Or a better way of going about this policy?
