I think it's a bad idea to use a replication formula to reduce the number of documents in a database (replica). The main reason is this. Say the user normally replicates with A in order to have a complete local database, and for some reason Notes replicates the database with C instead of A. Suddenly many documents in his local replica will disappear. When Notes is reconfigured to replicate with A again, all those documents will return in his local replica. That will cause a lot of network activity.

What exactly do you need this for?

Alternative solution: set up archiving, using a scheduled Compact task in a Program document. My personal mail database (on the server) is 100 Mb or so, while my mail archive is several Gb. Archiving is a standard feature of Notes, would that be a solution?

I assume you are trying to setup a DR Cluster server that would only contain the last 30 days of mail. If so you could enable the option "Remove Documents not Modified in the Last xx Days" (set to 30) in the Replication settings. If you need to make sure that the database only contains documents for the last 30 days and not all documents not modified in last 30 days you would need to run a scheduled purge agent.

Next, you need to deselect the option "Send Deletions made in this replica to other Replicas" for the replica on Server C, also under Replication Settings.

As an added precaution you may want to also consider enabling PIRC (Purge Interval Replication Control), also found under the replication settings.
