I need to remove messages from (sub)folders that reside below a public folder. The difficulty is that I need to be able to specify the maximum message age per individual subfolder.

public subfolder example
In the example (see screenshot) I need to remove the messages in the subfolders below "anno84".
Messages in the subfolder "Backoffice" should be removed after 50 days.
Messages in the subfolder "Callback" should be removed after 100 days.

I imagine that I'm looking for a powershell command/script that I would schedule daily to perform this task.

Hi,
For removing an Old email from Exchange server you have to run some command on PowerShell or Exchange Management Shell. But before going for deletion you have first assign the permission, then you have to assign the role to the user. Then you can search for a specific email and you can delete that email.
