Exchange/Outlook 2010 Auto Clear Junk E-Mail & Deleted Items

I would like to know if there is a way to have it (preferably from the Exchange/server-level) so that Exchange/Outlook auto deletes/purges old items from the Junk E-mail and Deleted Items folder after x # of days.

If it is possible to get a bit granular and make it so that it deletes only unread items in the Deleted Items bin that are x # of days old that would be great.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You may want to refer to Exchange's retention policy or utilize Outlook's Junk email filter / AutoArchive after a set number of days.

Configure and Apply retention policy below.

You can set up a Retention Policy tag for the Deleted Items, and a Personal tag for the JunkMail, create a policy with those two tags, apply the policy to all mailboxes and then it is easy to confirm this is working since OL 2010 displays items affected by the policy (e.g. in Deleted Items it would say something like - scheduled for delation in x days).

It is not difficult if you follow the processes and use the links above, and works like a charm

Good luck
