I'm running Kerio MailServer 6.6.2 build 7165 on Mac OS X Server.

I have Kerio set to enable mail archiving in the Archiving & Backup tab in Kerio Admin Console. It is set to compress old archives and create new archive folders monthly. It seems there is no way to tell Kerio when to purge old archive folders. Am I missing a setting somewhere? If it's not possible to automatically purge old archives with Kerio Admin proper, is it safe to just set up a new launchd job to periodically clean out the old compressed archive folders?

I do it manually. Once a month I burn the archives to a DVD and then I delete them.

Me too, but don't understand why it's not possible to do it automatically since it is possible with the backups. (I know that all sysadmins are lazy Smile )
Kerio can you please add this in your future release ?
Thanks in advance.

Probably because most archives get... archived. They're generally not meant to be stored for a couple of months then deleted. Usually, archives get stored long term, so you don't want an auto-purge. If they need to be removed from the server, you can do that when you put the archive on a long term storage medium.

We have a script that copied them to the backup server and to Jungle Disk. Once the copy is complete, it delete the archive. I believe this runs on the 2nd of each month. It basically uses Rsync.
