Managing the Dumpster
When a message, trash or spam lifetime has been reached, the message is moved to the dumpster if the feature is enabled. When users right-click on Trash, they can click Recover deleted items to retrieve items from their trash that has been deleted in the last x days. This threshold is based on the Visibility lifetime in dumpster for end user setting.
The Retention lifetime in dumpster before purging setting sets retention lifetime for items in dumpster. Items in dumpster older than the threshold are purged and cannot be retrieved.
Administrators can access the individual dumpster’s content, including spam, and they can delete data at any time before the message lifetime is reached.
To search for an item in the dumpster folder, type
zmmailbox --dumpster --types <message,converstation,contact,document>
To delete items in the dumpster folder, type
zmmailbox dumpsterDeleteItem <item-ids>
The dumpster folder feature can be managed from the administration console.
