-------------------------------------------------------Hey guys, what's up? 
Here is my situation.

I have a department mailbox that has a rule to forward every single
message that flows through it to our auditors. Now, this mailbox has
never been monitored or administered before and when I got to the
mailbox it had approximately 200,000 messages and is 73GB in size. I
went ahead and added the mailbox to my outlook client and then created a
rule that purged every message prior to September 13, 2006 (in other
words 30 days....) I only need to have 30 days worth of stuff, the rest
has already been sifted through by the auditors. My question is, can I
set up a function or a rule in outlook that will automatically keep only
the last 30 days worth of emails and I do not have to manually go in
there every day or every few weeks in this case and edit the rule and
then run it... I was thinking something like: 

If message = 30 days old THEN move to deleted items (or purge)
