Hi Rowell,

The best way to remove older emails than 6 months you can user retention policiy. You can deploy a retantion policy in order to delete emails older than 6 month. Check the following link:

Hi Rowell,

After you have created the retention policy for example: "delete6months" with the assign retention tag. You can only applied to one mailbox with the following command:

Set-Mailbox "mailbox" -RetentionPolicy "delete6months"
