Stop users from manually archiving from Outlook Deleted Items folder?

Hi,

How do we stop users from manually archiving items from their Outlook Deleted Items folder?

"Archive deleted items" is set to "Off" in the Exchange Mailbox Polixy but can still manually archive from their deleted items.

Thanks in advance,

Phil

Pretty sure you would need to remove the ability for them to manually archive, just take the button away.

Unfortunately, the "Archive deleted items" setting in the policy, as well as any DoNotArchive filter you assign using EVPM, only control what the automated Exchange Mailbox Archiving Task chooses to archive in the mailbox. What users choose to archive cannot be controlled by this, and as far as I know, EV does not include any supported method for preventing user-initiated archiving on a per-folder basis. As @TonySterling suggests, the only supported way to prevent users from manually archiving in this folder is to prevent them from manually archiving altogether.
