We are looking to implement a policy on our Exchange 2003 enviroment to only retain 6 months worth of information in Exchange.  We have an e-mail archive system that will retain messages for a longer period so there is no need to keep the data live in Exchange any longer.

I see polices to limit mailbox size, but is there option to limit based on age?

I don't believe you can do this in 2003 and its one of the new features of 2007

This was accomplished by adding the retention policy to our Recipient Policies in Exchange.
