Folder Auto-Clean

The Folder Auto-Clean feature of SmarterMail is to aid administrators in keeping mailbox sizes under control. Using Folder Auto-Clean, common folders like Junk E-Mail, Sent Items, and Deleted Items can be regularly cleaned of old messages so they do not clutter the user's mailbox. As the system administrator, you can choose to let domains and users override your suggested settings, or require them to use the policies you set.


Allow domains to override auto-clean settings - Check this box to allow domains to change the settings on this page. This is recommended, as many domain administrators have their own ideas of what an acceptable auto-clean policy is. Uncheck this box to lock the settings for all domains and all users.


Under each folder that has auto-clean options, you will see the settings below:

Enable auto-clean for this folder - Check this box to auto-clean the folder when it gets too big.

Folder size before auto-clean - When the folder reaches this size (in megabytes), auto-cleaning will be activated.

Folder size after auto-clean - Auto-clean will attempt to reduce the folder to this size or smaller when auto-cleaning is performed.
