DISCLAIMER: I'm not a Exchange Guru of any sort. I'm more of your Level 2 Jack-Of-All-Trades types. So go easy on me.
I'd like to delete items in a mail-enabled public folder (Exchange 2010) after X amount of days. I've found blogs, articles, and even Microsoft documentation on how to do so. So to start off I'm going to explain what I've done:
In the Public Folder Management Console (PFMC) I went under the PF's properties > Replication and set the "Local Replica Age Limit" to X days. Our PF Database's replication time is set to every 15 minutes, so I waited an hour to see any change. I saw nothing.
Thinking that I had somehow misinterpreted the Microsoft documentation on public folder attributes I also set the "age limit for replicas (days)" attribute to X days as well. This time I waited 24 hours, but still no emails were deleting themselves.
At this time I have this PF's "Local Replica Age Limit" and "age limit for replicas (days)" set to X days. EVERYTHING I'm reading is telling me that if I set the "Local Replica Age Limit" that items (in my case emails) should be deleting themselves automatically so I MUST be missing something.
Help me out here Guys/Gals.
