We have customers in business types that receive a HUGE number of attachments-- healthcare, real estate, etc. 99% of these attachments are saved and uploaded to a portal (EMR, CRM, etc.) meaning there is no need to retain in email. But, the email body itself needs to be kept.
The attachments waste huge amounts of space. One of our clients estimates at least 3 TB of their consumption is old attachments that were already processed.
PROBLEM: Auto-clean has NO option to delete only attachments while retaining the body of the email.
SUGGESTION: Add an auto-clean option to delete just ATTACHMENTS that meet criteria. Example: "Delete Attachments in [Inbox, Sent, Deleted] for messages [older than XX days]."
This will allow the client's IT department to make better use of their disk quota, while allowing users to keep all the email bodies, without the unneeded attachments.
