I created a recipent default policy in Exchange 2003 that will delete all email older than 180 days from the inbox, sent items and deleted items folder. I haven't hit 'Apply now'
The following questions are super duper job important...Is it true
1) If a new folder named 'Inbox old' is created directly underneath the 'Inbox', sent items, or deleted items folder, and users move items older than 180 days into the newly created folders. THE OVER 180 Day email will not be deleted from the new 'Inbox old' folder, but will be deleted from the orginal 'Inbox' folder?
2) How do I exclude people like the CEO, CIO, CFO or whomever i choose from the policy completely?
3) What happens if we have over a terabyte of email older than 180 days? Will it bring the system to a grinding halt trying to delete that much email?
