How to automate deletion of content in Lotus Notes mailboxes

Hello, We migrated to Exchange and Outlook a few years ago and we kept the Lotus mailboxes as we still use Lotus for some legacy DB's
But the mailboxes are taking unecessary space on the disk so we I want to completely empty all mailboxes without removing the actual mailbox.
How would I go on doing this with an agent?

You do not really need an agent... You can set the option to Remove documents not modified in the last x days, under space savers, of every mail database. It's under Space Savers, in the Replication Settings of every database.

Drawback: I don't know if you can set it for multiple databases at the same time.

Otherwise, it seems possible to do this through an agent, see http://www.tlcc.com/admin/tips.nsf/0/A5E95526C68A616F852571C3004C5073

And there's a 3rd party tool that might do this: http://www.ytria.com/databaseez

The first link goes to something else. The second to the third party tool would surely help if you can buy it. I ended up editing the users manually.

'this' referred to setting the option I mentioned...
