    My end-users receive specific files as attachments every day, sometimes several a day, from a subscription service. I need to make sure the emails are deleted after two weeks so that mailboxes don’t blow up. In their Outlook, while sitting in their chair, I can create a rule to move those files to a subfolder under Inbox. Then I can make that folder auto archive to just delete the emails containing the attachments after 2 weeks. Cool solution, if I am in their chair.

    NOW the fun begins: how can I push this plan to the entire organization without visiting every desktop?

    Policy needs to: Create the folder, implement the move rule, then apply the auto archive settings.

    I don’t think it can be done via Policy based on my research. However, I’m here to see if anyone has a solution.

    Additional details:

    Server OS is Windows SBS 2011. No Exchange server. End users pull email from Gmail.
    Some end users use Office 2010 H&B, others 2013 H&B. All use Outlook pulling from Gmail.
