Exclude Specific Message Classes
While configuring Mailbox Manager, it's easy to exclude folders from a mailbox recipient policy by clearing the check box beside the folder. If you clear Contacts, nothing in the default Contacts folder will be deleted or moved. However, you may want to exempt Contact Items that are stored in folders other than the default Contacts folder, or exempt Task Items that are stored in folders other than the default Tasks folder. The Message Classes feature allows you to exclude certain message classes from deletion, regardless of the folder they are stored in.
The following table lists the standard non-mail Outlook classes. Administrators who do not want to delete contacts or task items would add IPM.Contact and IPM.Task to the list of Excluded Message Classes in all relevant mailbox recipient policies.
|Standard Outlook Class||Outlook Item|
|IPM.Post||Post (in this folder)|
|IPM.Appointment||Appointment and Meeting Request entries|
You may also exclude message classes and their subclasses by using wildcards. For example, if you choose to exclude "IPM.MyClass.*", Mailbox Manager will exclude all clases beginning with IPM.MyClass. If you want to exclude all standard contact items, and all custom message classes derived from the standard contact class, add "IPM.Contact.*" to the list of excluded message classes.
