Is it just message information you need to see or is it content as well?

  • 4. Aceessing PF regarding costom forms is slow
    Hello, Did anybody experience this? When I try to publish a form, or even when I go to Tools/Forms.../Design Form menu, I have to wait approx. 90 seconds before the dialog box where I can select the folder comes back. Other things seem to go with OK speed, and also after this once I select the folder/form, the task is done immediately (weather opening or publishing, it does not matter). I am rather puzzled, it looks a bit like Outlook is parsing through all the PF folders and get to a timeout somewhere? Where should I look? Peter

If the mailbox manager will work for you, you can always set an attribute on
the users that is unique to the users you want to mailbox manager policy to
apply to.  Then, you can create a new recipient policy (mailbox manager
only), and use a filter that uses that attribute.  Then, when the policy is
run, it will only run on those mailboxes that meet that criteria.

Hope that helps.

1.***Delete UNREAD email >90 Days (Exchange 2003)

I'm trying to delete all UNREAD emails older then 90 Days.  Recipient Policy 
will only let me select the date but there isn't a selection for UNREAD 
emails.  Exchange 5.5 Cleanup Agent (I think that's what it was called) had 
a check box for UNREAD emails.  Is there way to do this in Exchange 2003, or 
is there 3rd party app that will do this?

Boy I miss Exchange 5.5!!!

homeserver in the global address book is wrong, i can add new users and they

study each users entry in the global address book in detail? I can use the 
Global Addresses to send to internal users without any problem, but the

3.Setting Outlook 2000 AutoArchive longer than 60 days

Is there a way to do this? It is very tedious to do every folder at a
time so I want to be able to set the AutoArchive setting to 365 days.

Is there somewhere in the registry or is there a group policy that
could be used to set this at the server?

This is on Outlook 2000.

4.Clean unread messages

Does anyone know of a way to clean out UNREAD messages older than, say 60 
days, from all mailboxes on an Exchange 2000 server?  Mailbox Manager seems 
to have lost this feature from 5.5.  Are there third party tools to do this?  
Does Exchange 2003 bring this feature back?

5.Recipient Policy ? - Deleting e-mails over 60 days old

Hello Everyone

I've been given the task of setting up a retention policy for how long we 
store e-mails on our e-mail server.  We are using Exchange 2003 in a Windows 
2003 domain, with all lastest service packs.  I need some suggests or best 
practices when it comes to creating recipient policies.  The majority of my 
clients will get the 60-day old e-mail deletion policy but I do have some 
people (and it could change) that will not get the policy.  How can I build 
this policy and accomendate people that will not get the policy?  Your help 
with this is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Alex Anderson
