Hi all,
Just a quick question in regard to Exchange 2007 and public folders.  We have a calendar setup within the Public folder and I have just seen that some, not all, items from a year ago have started to disappear.  
Is there a setting I can change to stop Exchange archiving or automatically removing items.

Many thanks.

    Hi thanks for your input, but sadly that isn't for Public Folders, it is for Managed Folders.

    Is there a similar thing for public folders?  I can't see any options in the Console, but there could be some command line function.

    So on your public folder properties on the Limits tab you should be able to set the retention etc.
