Enhancement Request - Delete Emails

Brad McClave

With our current procedures, we monitor both Track-it and our email to ensure that if Track-it doesn't create a work order (typically because of exclusion rules) we can make sure we can manually create it if need be.  Track-it marks all emails as read but what we would like to see is Track-it to delete emails it creates work orders for and leave emails it does not create work orders for.

    I just saw this one posted here. Would you mind posting this in the Ideas module now that it is available on this site? It is here.

    This has been submitted as an enhancement request in the ideas section, in the mean time, for anyone searching through here looking for a temporary solution, here are a couple of ideas that may work in some Exchange environments to simplify the removal of those old emails.


    1.  Exchange Server Export-Mailbox PowerShell Cmdlet:  Schedule/Script this CmdLet to remove emails older than...


    Export-Mailbox -Identity “MailboxNameGoesHere″ -IncludeFolders "\Inbox", “\Sent Items”, “\Deleted Items” -StartDate “1/1/2012″ -EndDate “1/1/2022″ –DeleteContent


    2.  Exchange Retention Policy:  Use Exchange "Retention Policies" to set a policy on the specified mailbox/mailboxes that removes emails that are older than "x" days.  This may be something only available in relatively newer versions of Exchange.
