I recently did a test:

* sent myself some test emails

* placed them in sub-folders of my Inbox

* waited for the sync job overnight

* confirmed that they were in the BMA in the sub-folders

* created a saved search targeting these emails

* removed the emails via a retention policy

* confirmed that they were removed correctly

 

So far, so good. 

 

I have noticed however that the old sub-folders of my Inbox, which were Deleted from the Exchange Server and which now have no emails in them in the BMA, still remain in the BMA. 

 

Is it possible to target these folders for removal as well?  No point keeping them if there is no mail in them.

No, there is not currently a way to do that. I can open a feature request, if you'd like, to have that be an option for retention. If that's something you're interested in, let me know.

Yes, please do, that would be great.

 

I'd like to be able to set up a retention policy job to remove any folder from the BMA where:

  1. the folder contains no archived items; AND
  2. the folder is not currently an folder found in the user's mailbox

Hello Stevedjg,

 

I do not have any updates at this time. I will add your voice to the feature request to increase it's visibility with the planning team. You can check back after a month or two for updates if you'd like.

I would also like this feature but for a different reason.  If we have different retention policies - say 3 different types of email (financal, planning, and personel).   And all users have these 3 folders and file email accordingly.  I would like to be able to set up a policy to delete email in folder Finance after 5 yrs of age, Planning after 10 years and investigation after 20 years.

 

Does that make sense?
