We're looking to run an automated cleanup on our Exchange 2010 database that will permanently delete any message older than 3 years.  How can we do this?  Out of the box, can we pick particular main folders (Inbox, Sent) or does it just run against the entire users mailbox?  Is it possible to only run against a group of users?
