Changes to spam and trash retention rules
Monday, April 12, 2021
On June 8th Thexyz Email will start making changes to the retention rules for the spam and trash folders. The maximum data retention limits of the spam and trash folders will change to 14 and 30 days respectively. This means that any mail data in these folders older than the retention limits will be removed and unrecoverable. Since an unlimited number of messages can now be stored in either of the spam or trash folders, the option to "Delete After 'x' Total Email" will be removed.
Prior to June 8th, you should review your spam and trash folder cleanup settings. If they are higher than the new limits (spam: 14 days, trash: 30 days) then the mailbox owner will need to review the mail in those folders and move anything worth keeping into another folder. You can view the spam and trash limits for each mailbox by logging into https://admin.thexyz.com and navigating to mailboxes > manage > settings.
Please inform your staff and members of your domain of these upcoming mail retention changes. We look forward to the benefits these changes will bring to both the Thexyz Email platform and your organization's mailboxes.
