Configure Newsgroup Expiration Policy

In Exchange 2000/2003, how can I configure a newsgroup expiration policy?

If you’re running a newsgroup feed from a live NNTP server (see Configure Newsgroup Feed From a NNTP Server) you might want to configure an expiration policy to automatically delete items older than X days so not to overwhelm the server.

  1. To do so open the Exchange System Manager console.

  1. Click Finish.

  2. View the new policy.
