    Recipient polices under ESM>Recipients>Recipient Policies>"name of policy Policy>Mail box manager settings policy (providing the Mail box manager settings is ticked against the Policy) will enable you to perform mailbox maintenance according to the parameters you specify in the policy. That being said these apply to the inbox in its entirerity and not individual messages. AFAIK there isnt anything client side (outlook rule) that can do that either for a specified time period.

      First thanks for the reply.
      Sorry, actually I need to delete a specific message and no whole.
      For example: IT send comunicates to all users and after 3 days this specify message must be deleted from all users.

      Any suggestion ?

        Have you checked out "Message Expires" in the options settings in Outlook?

          That only greys out the email and marks a line through it but doesnt delete it from the mailbox.

              Why do you need to delete it?

                We send in a regular basis large messages for users and they forgot to delete it, causing storage problems.

                I know it is not normal, but should have a solution.

                I appreciate your help.

                    This is a great tool, but I'am not sure that work could work on a schedule.

                    I did a quick search and couldn't find how schedule this to run every 3 days.

                      Every 3 days could be manual, but exmerge can be scripted:

                          Run it as a batch job in scheduled tasks.
