We are replacing Exchange 2003 with Exchange 2007. Part of it involves the need to know which users have custom folders. Is there a way to easily know this so I can inform the users to do the necessary changes?
Is there a way to know if user mailbox contains custom folders?
The Exchange server 2007 will not actually have issues with retaining policy which are applied to all subfolders created by users. Custom folders in exchange 2007 are viewed as folders that are created and apply to all mailboxes. You may apply different retention policies to the custom folders if you wish. So all the folders created by the exchange's admin are all defined by the exchange 2007 as custom folder. Those that are created by users are not actual custom folders. So it is easy to know if a mailbox has custom folders in that all the admin created folders are custom folders.
