Deploy Rules in Outlook and Set Retention
Posted on 2011-09-29
Here is my scenario:
I am running Exchange 2007 on a WIN2008 x64 box. My end users are running Outlook 2007.
Our spam filter sends reports to the end users which a list of what is caught in their quarantine. I have set up a managed folder for these messages to be redirected to.
Here's what I am looking to do:
Deploy a rule to all users that will redirect the message to the managed folder. MS Dynamics Email Router has a Rules Deployment Wizard, but that requires CRM which we do not use. I was wondering if there is another way to do this without importing a .rwz or setting up the rule manually on each machine.
I am also looking to set retention on the managed folder for 10 days. I have set the retention period in the Managed Content Settings for the managed folder to 1 day for testing, but it doesn't seem to work. I read a note in the wizard that I interpreted as saying that this was a premium feature of Exchange. Our version wouldn't apply if it was. Messaging Records Management schedule is on. Not sure if this has anything to do with retention or not, but I thought I would mention it. Is there another way to make sure items older than 10 days will be deleted from this folder or messages any messages from X sender are deleted from all mailboxes after 10 days. No "delete after" options in the rules wizard either.
Thanks for reading,
