auto delete emails older than X days Outlook 2010 \ Exchange 2003
Posted on 2014-01-30
We are running an Exchange 2003 cluster. We are hoping to move to Exchange 2010 in the near future but we really want to get mailbox sizes smaller before moving them to a new cluster.
All of our clients use Outlook 2010, so we tried to use the auto archive functionality to accomplish this. We set the desired settings in group policy, and found that the settings get set, but not "applied". There is a button in Outlook archive settings window that says to apply these settings now, and then it starts the process. But this process only occurs if the user initiates it, we cannot find a way to to force it upon the user through GPO.
Does anyone know of a way I can make this work? Or is there another way to go about it? Will this still be a problem for me in Exchange 2010 or does it have some built in features for it?
