Hi Everyone,

We have Exchange 2003, SP2 on the server and Outlook 2003, SP3 running on client workstations.  I would like to find out the following:

1. Where do I change the retention settings for "Recover Deleted Items From - Deleted Items" in Outlook to 1 week?

2. Where do I change the retention settings for how long to keep the deleted emails in "Deleted Items" folder in Outlook before they are purged?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Answers:
#1. You will find this setting in the properties of the mailbox store (see screenshot 1)

#2. You will need to create a receipient policy and manage the deleted items folder. Set the retention and age to your liking. (see screenshot 2)

Hi. The schedule listed in the limits tab is for sending warning emails to users hitting limits. The recoverable deleted items and mailboxes will run during system maintenance, configured on the Database tab.
