Cleaning Up Messages Using the Exchange Mailbox Agent
Message cleanup is performed separately from message archiving.
Mailbox cleanup operations creates stubs for successfully backed up emails.
Note: You must add a recall services link in the Exchange mailbox's Properties to successfully conduct mailbox cleanup operations. For more information about adding a recall services link, see Configuring Recall Services.
Depending on what you configured in the Exchange cleanup policy, you can do the following:
- Stub, and then delete messages from the Exchange server.
- Delete messages from the Exchange server without stubbing the messages. This is also known as source pruning.
- Stub or delete only the messages that include attachments.
Note: Cleanup is not supported for public folders.
