Our email policy retention policy is 90 days for Inbox and the Outbox.  The Trash is emptied after 7 days.  The calendar is handled differently at each campus.  Some folks want to keep everything in their calendars forever.  Two campuses include the calendar in the email policy with a retention of 90 days.  The other two campuses do not include the calendar in any cleanup routine.  Student email is on a Pegasus system, and each student is limited to 2 mgb of disk space.  

Hope this helps.

A few weeks ago a question was put to this list asking for input on how long we should keep e-mails before we purge them.  Many businesses replied but I did not see any responses from colleges or universities.  We currently do not have a policy to purge e-mail for students and faculty and staff but we would like to.  I have been asked to find out what other colleges do.  If there are any colleges out their that have adopted this kind of policy, I would appreciate your feedback.  Specifically, how long do you keep e-mails for students and how long you keep e-mails for faculty and administration.  Thanks in advance.
