Is it possible to clean the log (not the database log) on Exchange 2010 automatically as I see that there are many logs accumulated under C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1. Just wonder we can set the retention period for the log ...

Hi

W3SVC1 is most probable the logs for the default website in IIS. (where OWA lives)
You can easily write some simple powershell script which deletes entries older then x days.

Code would look like this and the job would be a scheduled task.

# Delete all Files in C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles on yourservername older than 7 day(s)

$Path = "C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles"
$Daysback = "-7"
$CurrentDate = Get-Date
$DatetoDelete = $CurrentDate.AddDays($Daysback)
Get-ChildItem $Path -Recurse | Where-Object { $_.LastWriteTime -lt $DatetoDelete } | Remove-Item
