Deleted e-mails older than 90 days to be automatically purged

Beginning on Monday, July 23, 2012, we will be changing the parameters within the DSU Exchange server to automatically purge any e-mails with the deleted folders for all Faculty and Staff that is greater than 90 days old.  IT will perform the setting change on the central server; you will not need to do anything for the changes to take effect in your account.

On average, DeSales University (DSU) receives approximately 20,000 e-mails each day.  As we all know, many of these messages can be spam, solicitations, surveys, and other unwanted junk mail.  There are a majority of these e-mails that we do not respond to and simply delete the e-mails. With the amount of e-mails that are received and immediately deleted, the IT Department is becoming concerned about the storage of all of these unwanted and ultimately deleted e-mails. Making these parameter changes will allow us to free up disk space and keep everyone’s deleted folders to a manageable size.
