Managing ZCS Configuration > Configure Email Lifetime Rules

Configure Email Lifetime Rules
You can configure when email messages should be deleted from an accounts folders, and the trash and junk folders by COS or for individual accounts.
 
Number of days a message can remain in a folder before it is purged. This includes data in RSS folders. The default is 0; email messages are not deleted. The minimum configuration for email message lifetime is 30 days.
Number of days a message remains in the Trash folder before it is purged. The default is 30 days.
Number of days a message can remain in the Junk folder before it is purged. The default is 30 days.
By default, the server purges email messages that have exceeded their lifetime every minute.You can change the duration of time that the server should “rest” between purging mailboxes in the administration console, Global settings or Server settings, General Information page.
For example, the purge interval is set to 1 minute, after mailbox1 is purged of messages that meet the message lifetime setting, the server waits 1 minute before beginning to purge mailbox2.
If the message purge schedule is set to 0, messages are not purged even if the mail, trash and spam message lifetime is set.
Note:
Because users cannot see these message lifetime settings, if you set a purge limit, make the purge policy known to your users.
