Replicating numerous mailboxes to another server

I have thousands of mailboxes to be replicated to another server. For each one I need to replicate only the last seven days of e-mails. Is there any way to do all of them together in one click?
If the replicas are not there currently, I am not sure if you can do this easily. Even if they were there, I'm not sure this is an easy task. There are several issues to worry about, the primary one being that you do not want the new databases to somehow write back to production and wipe out everything but the last seven days.

I guess it depends on what you want to do going forward. If this is a one-time deal, then the easiest method might be to create replica stubs and then either insert a replication history event into the stub (via LotusScript) or check the box on the stub to not keep documents older than seven days. The second item is the one that could cause issues if it ever replicated back. So, I guess the short answer is there isn't an easy way to do this. There might be a third-party tool that could help, but I do not know of one that addresses this need.
