Is there a way to set mail to expire in... let's say 90 days. I don't want users keeping their mail forever, it's just going to create clutter on the server.

You could stop the server, delete all *.eml files older then 90 days (from Windows on the server), delete the index files and start the server again... The server will automatically regenerate the index files.

NOTE: This is just an idea, and it should work, but please verify with Kerio that this will not screw up your server! Better yet, before you start deleting files, mak a copy of the store-folder, zo you can always get back to a healthy store...

Sounds a bit drastic.

I would put mailbox quotas on and let the users decide which mail is important.

I can imagine the phone calls about the 'vitally important' emails that have hit 91 days old...!

why not?

If you keep everything in archive it should be not a problem to delete after 90 days...

(I must store everyhting for 6 years - nobody know if the server will break oneday about the quantity of mails)
