Automatic Deletion of Emails After X Days

Occasional Visitor

We're using Office with Exchange Online (though not O365 as we already owned the licenses).


I'm new to Exchange Online and trying to understand how I can automatically delete emails after 30 days. The boss wants all emails automatically deleted after that period of time. 


Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks!

Create a retention policy and apply it to all of your mailboxes. Set it to permanently delete after 30 days.

Hope that answers your questions.

Best, Chris
