Automated Email Account

Is there a way to have a mailbox that will mark messages as read and delete them after 7 days without a user having the account open in Outlook or OWA? (Exchange Policy? Setup a rule for deletion if it runs server side?)

They would have access to that account if they needed to look at an email, but for the most part nobody would be signing into the account.
Thanks in advance.

Sadly, sounds more like a job for a slave PC/VM (with outlook open and some rules or VBA.

Depending  on the version of Exchange (2010 and up) you are running you can use Retension Policy Tags to accploish the auto deletion of the email items that are older then 7 days.

Setup Retention Policy Tags

You can also create an Outlook rule to auto mark emails as read but it is when the mail items enter the mailbox.

We only have Exchange 2007 but that will be taken into account after an upgrade.

Thanks
