MS Exchange 2000 running on Windows 2000
Mix of XP PRO and 2000 PRO workstations.
Mix of Outlook 2000 and Outlook XP.
Some Background: I"m the admin for a medium size law firm (about 100 workstations). The attorneys and the admin staff need to be able to communicate confidentially via email. However, the attorneys demand that their assistants have access to their inbox, sent items, deleted items and various personal folders.
So here's what I did.....
I've set up a Rule in Outlook (2000 and Outlook XP) that takes any email marked as confidential and puts it into a folder called Confidential. This works fine as I've taken any and all access to that particular folder away from the assistants. However, when a confidential email is deleted from the Confidential folder, it goes into the Deleted Items and is then visable to the assistant (because they have access to the attorneys deleted items).
It defeats the purpose of having the Confidential Rule if the end result is that the assistant can browse the deleted items and see the confidential messages.
Does anyone know of a way that I can tell Outlook to delete the confidential items permanently without moving them first to the deleted items? I see where you can have all the items deleted permanently but that's no good as the attorneys (against my wishes) use the Deleted Items as storage...*sigh*....
Thanks for your help.
