    Default [SOLVED] Keeping mail in Trash folder indefinately

    We have some users who expect the behavior of the Trash folder to keep message until they explicitly empty it.

    I wanted to know if there is a way to configure a COS to allow this? I see that it is possible to specify the number of days that the Trash folder will keep mail, after which the "zmpurgemessages" cron job should nuke mail older than X days|hours. I wanted to ask what the defined behavior is when the value is set to 0 days.

    Will mail get nuked or be kept indefinately?

    Thanks,
    Kirk

    0 is kept indefinately
    1 is delete after 1 day
    2 is delete after 2 days
    30 is delete after 30 days (default)
    etc

    Notice how admin console > cos/individual user > advanced > 'email message lifetime' is set to 0?
    If that gets set to 1 everyone's mail in all folders would be gone by the end of the day (which makes for some really pissed off users if that's not what you wanted to do).

    I know someone who accidentally set 'email message lifetime' to 1 in the COS...which was applied to all users...on a FOSS install...no recent backup...that hurts...
