Users are not able to empty their trash in their Groupwise mailbox.
Smart Purge ensures that GroupWise items will not be purged from the system prior to backup. As part of the backup, the GWTSA places a time stamp on each database that is backed up.
Verify if the following option is checked / allowed.
1. From ConsoleOne select Tools | GroupWise Utilities| Client| Options| Environment | Cleanup.
2. Allow Purge of Items Not Backed Up: Select this option to enable items that have not been backed up to be removed from the trash.
This option is enabled by default.
Select the Prompt Before Purging option (available only if Allow Purge of Items Not Backed Up is enabled) to prompt the user to confirm the purging of any files that have not been backed up
The retention timestamp required to allow deletion of emails from Trash will not be set if the mailbox has not been processed without error.
1) In the mailbox tab in the Archive Manager website, check that the "Folders Updated" date is recent for the users that are unable to empty their Trash. If the "Folders Updated" date is not current, there may be issues with processing the users mailbox. Set the following setting and value in the Archive Manager configuration editor to turn on extended logging for the GroupWise Store Manager Service:
GroupWise Store Manager Logging Level | 11
The following logfile will contain further details of any errors when processing the users mailbox "C:\Program Files\Quest Software\ArchiveManager\Archive GroupWise Store Manager Service.exe.log"
2) Verify that the GroupWise Time Stamp is up to date on these mailboxes using the GroupWise Time Stamp Utility: http://www.novell.com/documentation/gw65/?page=/documentation/gw65/gw65_admin/data/a3on2pj.html
