My deleted emails don't stay in my Deleted Items folder.
If I read an email from my inbox then delete it that email doesn't appear in
my "Deleted Items" folder. They seem to automatically purge. If I delete an
email that has not been opened then that unread email does show up in my
"Deleted Items" folder. I can do a right-click find on the "Deleted Items"
folder and it appears to find emails but I'm not sure. I need to reset
something so all my emails stay in the "Deleted Items" folder until I choose
to purge them. The only thing I have done in the last couple of weeks is to

If you set a global option to purge deleted items after say, 90 days, will
this take effect on existing messages in the deleted items folder that are
already older then the 90 day limit?
We have created a mailbox management job under recipient policies to do
just this ... it deletes items that have been deleted and remain in the
users deleted items folder for 30 days.
but you can also have a policy that keeps items for X days in DIRF and
this is under system policies - limits tab i think....

I deleted a number of important emails from the deleted

Anyone. Can they be retrieved?

Does putting junk mail into the the junk email icon (pink envelope) first
have any more effect on minimizing future junk mail than just deleting it
(trash can) the first time around.
I put junk into the 'Junk' envelope. Then, when I select/delete it from
there, it goes into the 'Deleted Items', where it would have gone right away
if I'd just clicked the trash can in the first place.
Is there a reason for taking two steps in getting rid of junk mail, instead
of one�deleting it?
Rafael Mont...How can I restore my Deleted Items folder?
I have my email setup with IMAP, and while managing my folders I accidentally
deleted my "Deleted Items" folder (the default folder created by Outlook). I
cannot find any way to restore that folder, or recreate it and direct my
deleted items to the new folder.
Now when I delete emails they are just gone and I cannot recover them or
"undo" a delete. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I am now hesitant to
delete anything as it will be gone for good if I do.

Where do I set the Exchange Server to automatically purge people's
Delete Items folders after X number of days, without them having to do
it automatically? I know I can do it by GPO, but I also remember there

days, or when it reaches Y size, or both.

I would like to force deleted items to be purged from the Deleted Items
folder after a set number (7) of days. To put it another way, I would like a
message to stay in a users Deleted Items folder for only 7 days and have the
system "empty" it automatically.
This is not the same as setting the "Keep Deleted Items for (7 days)" on the
Mailbox Store, Limits properties. Same goes for a System Policy for Limits.
These affect the retention of "emptied" items, not messages currently in the
Deleted Items folder.

Our Exchange 2000 database is getting close to the 16GB limit.
Although several users has deleted a lot of e-mail the online defrag
does not give any significant increase in the free space.
The mailbox store has about 480MB free space after the last online defrag.
One user deleted 1GB of e-mail and that gave about 25MB free space after the
online defrag… Another user deleted about 800MB...
What happened to all those megabytes??
Any ideas appreciated!
Deleted items go into Deleted Items Retention for the period, specified
in DB properties. You can either reduce this period...
