E-mail message lifetime In ZImbra 5.0.14

Postby Caterpillar » Wed Jul 29, 2009 1:10 am

Hi All..
I am trying to change the value of the E-mail message life time from admin account for users, But I'm unable to do it. It says "Error! Message retention time has to be more than 30 days!". How to change the value for users accounts permanently..? Can anyone please tell me.. Waiting for reply.:confused:
Thanks in Advance

Why are you trying to reduce the email retention to less than thirty days? The whole point of a mail server is that users keep their mail on there for reference.

Email retention policies with lower and lower dates are becoming standard corporate policy these days. If that is the policy and it's purged you can't recover it if sued. Being from France, you probably wouldn't understand... here in America everybody sues each other (it's the American way). :eek:

I would also like to know this. Is there some command line to shorten the setting or is it hard coded? I currently need to implement a 14 day retention policy.
Thanks everyone for your help!

We have a specific requirement to set the retention period to 14 days.

Sorry, are you saying you have implemented a lower retention policy?

Sorry, to be clear what I am saying is I would also *like* to set a policy of 14 days and that we have a good reason for doing so.
It's an LDAP attribute, so could in theory by changed manually but that isn't good practice and in any case it would appear that there is a failsafe built in as per the last line of: http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=Mailbox_Purge

I talked to a rep who sells the Network edition and said this is very possible. I wonder if it is a "Network Edition Only" Feature....


hmmmm....
