Hello,

I have a Exchange server 2003 SP2 on server 2003 Standard. I have looked everywhere and have not found an exact answer to this question. Is there a way to hide the feature in outlook 2007 that allows users to recover deleted emails from their deleted folder? I really need this option gone. All of my users have outlook 2007. I know there is a way that you can disable the add-in through outlook but was wondering if there is a way on the server end or the creation of a group policy.

Thank you!!

You can change the default retention period in exchange - the default is 30 days

Should be able to download / install the Outlook 2007 Admin Templates and then disable the option to disable the Recover Deleted Items menu.
