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.
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.
