    Junk Email (2007)

    I have a user who is requesting that their junk mail get deleted based on who many days old requested : his junk email folder in Outlook is set up so that the emails delete after so many days.
    Any ideas?

    If this junk mail is in the inbox just move to the junk mail folder and it will be treated like everything else in the folder. If this isn't the case, where is the junk mail?

    the email is in the Junk E-mail folder - what he wants is stuff in this folder to automatically get deleted after X days.

    Right click the junk e-mail folder and select Properties. Then click on the auto-archive tab and set things the way that is required. "OK" your way out. Then go to Outlook | Tools | Options | Other | Autoarchive. Make sure Autoarchive is set to run at least as often as the smallest delete interval. Set other general settings as required. "OK" your way out.

    Remember, autoarchive looks at the date referenced. So, the date received may not be the date that autoarchive is using.
