Exchange Policy Woes...

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?

How do I exclude people like the CEO, CIO, CFO or whomever i choose from the policy completely? - Have the users applied with a custom attribute apart from the Execs and apply the policy according to the Custom attribute :)

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?  - Possible ... for this you can build a policy for just a particular Store\Database and start one at a day and proceed :)

Let me know if you have any more doubts.

Yes, Subfolder, will the emails be deleted?

I will look into how to do this...create a custom attribute and apply it to all users, then remove it from the Execs?

Applying Mailbox Manager policies to a sub-folder

However, applying a policy (e.g. to delete items older than a certain number of dates) to a particular folder does not apply this to a sub-folder

I will look into how to do this...create a custom attribute and apply it to all users, then remove it from the Execs? - Cool :)
