Hi Experts,

When someone sets an expire date in my environment(Outlook 2010) on the top of the message I can see something like "This message expired on Thursday, 31 October 2013, 09:10 AM" when the message gets expired.

So in case I restart Outlook, there is a line crossing the message in my Inbox and also it becomes in grey colour.

I heard I can remove this message from the Inbox after expire. Is this possible?
Some secretaries send messages that are not important after some hours. For example:
Reception sends a message today to everyone saying someone parked a Toyota in the CIO bay and the car needs to be removed.
One month later Mary after 30 days in vacation, she reads a message send from Reception in regards that someone parked in the CIO bay.

Should I do from Outlook 2010 or via Exchange Retention Policy Tags?

Deleting and expiring settings in AutoArchive explained

Show AllShow All
You can change the settings and options to customize AutoArchive. However, the settings for expiring items and deleting items can be confusing.

AutoArchive moves items from their original location in Microsoft Outlook to an archive file folder when they expire, that is, when they pass their aging period. The different types of Outlook items have default aging periods that do not change unless you change the settings for them manually.

 IMPORTANT  

Items are stored in their archived locations unless you change one or more AutoArchive settings, choosing to have the items deleted when they expire. The items are not deleted from their archived locations, they can only automatically deleted before they are moved to their archive location. Once they are archived, they can only be deleted manually.
Choosing an option to have items deleted permanently deletes the items automatically when they expire. They are not archived. For instance, if you click Delete expired items (e-mail folders only), this option deletes all messages in all your e-mail folders, such as Inbox, Sent, or Drafts, when they reach the end of their aging periods. The messages are not archived.
Change the settings for AutoArchive
On the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the Other tab, and then click AutoArchive.
Click the settings that you want, and then click OK.
