Purging

Hi,

Is it possible to stop users from purging emails, and allowing the server to 
clean out the inboxes after 90 days?  OR have all the users deleted emails 
automatical stored some place, were a administrator can view the deleted 
emails?

Messages deleted from any folder will go in to the deleted items folder and 
held their
indefinitely unless you have a mailbox manager process cleaning it out. 
Messages deleted
from the deleted items folder will go in to the dumpster (a hidden folder) 
and stay their
until the deleted item retention period expires and then be deleted for 
good.  The only way
something bypasses the deleted folder and dumpster is if it's hard deleted 
(shift-delete).
If that's the case, it's gone.  As far as I know, there is no way to block a 
user from hard
deleting a message.  If you need to retain a copy of every message hitting 
your server, message
journaling is your best option.

In this case can you provide the folder and/or the file name for the deleted 
email items that I expect to be on the exchange server?

Messages go to the 'dumpster' and the contents are viewable from outlook by
going to Tools/Recover Deleted Items for each user.  As an admin, the only 
way
to view those would be to open each users mailbox.  If you enabled 
journaling,
a copy of every message would go to the mailbox you specified as the 
journaling
mailbox.

Restoring a Purged Message
Human Resources is requesting that I restore a message that a user received, deleted, and purged from their recovery bin all in the same day. So I definitely can't restore it easily through the Outlook client. I have the mail store set to "Do not permanently delete mailboxes and items until the store has been backed up". I thought that would allow me to restore purged messages in a case like this. I have restored the entire mailbox store from backup (made 3 hours after the desired message arrived) to an offline server. I've mounted up the database, connected the user, et...

Bunch of messages selected after Purge [OL2003]
Outlook 2003 on an IMAP account: After I'm done reading new messages, I usually go to Edit > Purge deleted messsages to remove the ones I have deleted. Most of the time after the purging has occurred, Outlook 2003 will leave a bunch of messages near the end of my list (which happen to be the most recent, because I sort on Received) get selected. I had _not_ selected these before the purge operation. The number of selected messages varies. It doesn't seem to be the number of messges purged, which is usually a lot more.

Recover Purged items from the Dumpster
Please read the question carefully. I appreciate any help but only from people who understand my issue. I have a shared public folder that receives incoming faxes as e-mails. Users delete these e-mails once forwarded. Users empty their Deleted Items which places the deleted items into the Dumpster. Users then go to Tools/recover deleted items and purge them from the dumpster. How can I recover these messages that were purged from the dumpster? How can I prevent users from doing this?

Purge mailboxes?
If I have the mailbox retention setting on my server set for 30 days and I delete a user object can I simply go in and purge the mailbox if it's no longer needed? Does this have any ill effects? Does that create white space in the store where that mailbox formerly occupied? Thanks, Dan Yes you can purge them ahead of the scheduled time - you'll need to manually run the Clean-up Agent first, though, otherwise the purge option will be greyed out. And yes, that should create whitespace for those messages that aren't shared by anyone else. -- Neil Hobson Exchange MVP http:/...
