The Question is:
How do I delete all VMS mail older than 30 days?
Our corporate lawyers have ordered that no user may keep e-mail messages for
more than 30 days.
In order for this plan to work, we need to devise a way to locate and delete
individual messages in all user directories that meet a date criteria.
I've been unable to accomplish this by reading mail headers and extracting the
information. The number of lines in the header varies (some use CC:), and the
length of the fields is also inconsistent
The Answer is :
Please request formal assistance from the Customer Support Center,
as this problem may not be a trivial problem to resolve -- security
issues involving data and data remanence tend not to be the simplest
of problems to (securely and reliably) resolve.
