How can I put a policy on every user's machine that all unread mails will automatically be deleted by Domino within X number of days? We are using Domino 4.6. Thanks, your help will be much appreciated.
I have a few thoughts about this.
First, you need to run this code on the server, since the user might never log on with their workstation (that might be why they haven't read their mail). But unread marks are stored in the user's desktop on their workstation. Unread marks are also quite complicated and are not exposed to the programmer. I think the whole thing would be quite tricky.
Second, why do you want to do this? Do you really want to get rid of mail that has not been read? What if someone gets sick, and is out of the office for a while, do you want their unread mail to disappear?
Just my thoughts... Perhaps you can clarify what you want to do, and I will have some other ideas. Feel free to write back.
