I'm looking for a script for Exchange 2010 that will delete mail older than 120 days in all user mailboxes.  It would need to be something I can schedule to run on a daily basis.

Thanks

I can't use retention policies, as they will apply to the archive mailbox of the users also.  Need to have a solution in which e-mail will get deleted from the mailbox, but not impact the archive mailbox.

Try look at this, basically you have to use search-mailbox with -searchquery

Search-Mailbox -Identity "Starr, Ringo" -SearchQuery "Received:> $($Today) and Received:(Today) 

Open in new window


However, Search Query doesn't contained "Received"
