Outlook dumpster and single item recovery

good morning and I realize this might sound like a really simple question. Unfortunately I do not know off the top of my head and need confirmation and or documentation. If a user is on Outlook 2010 with exchange 2013 without single itemrecoveryenabled what is the length of time the message ir preserved after it is deleted. I was thinking only 30 days but just realized that single itemcovery which we have set for is 30 days and the dumpster makes it 45 days. Am I correct? Does anyone have any info?

Mail Items are 14 days by default, where you can recover them using the SafetyNet (dumpster) and 30 days for Mailboxes that are in the disconnected state, unless otherwise changed.

So if I have singleitemrecovery configured for 30 days on a mailbox then its 30 + 14 dumpster = 44

The above is not correct. If your mailbox is in a disconnected state the dumpster does not run against these mailboxes. You have 30 days by default before the cleam-mailbox maintenance removes the mailbox from the system.

I am not speaking of disconnected mailboxes as I do not care about this information. I am speaking directly on mailboxes that are connected. Is this the answer 30 + 14 = 44

Below is the break down for a mailbox that has Single Item Recovery enabled...

Delete Items Retension 14 days (dumpster)
Single Item Recovery (30 days)
- When a user shift+deletes an email it goes into the Dumper (14 days)
- When the dumpster items are removed after 14 days these items will now go into Purges Folder
- This is where Single Item Recovery kicks in
- Items in the Purges Folder will now be held in there for 30 days (unless this mailbox has a legal hold)
- After 30 days items are then removed from the purges folder

So to answer your question it is 14+30=44 is correct.

Hope this makes sense.

Based on my last comment i thought you were talking about the mailbox being removed from the system. which in that case it is based on your Mailbox Retension settings.
