Dear Team,

I have a journaling mailbox that automatically moved unnecessary email to the deleted items folder. Instead of keeping the mail in that folder I would like to automatically delete them permanently from the delete items folder.
Is there any way to do this, could it be done from exchange or outlook? We have exchange 2016 and outlook 2013.

Thank you.

Thank you, at this time this mailbox is not opened by a user in outlook so I believe I would need to do this more with exchange, something like a script that deletes these items daily or something similar.
