22.214.171.124 Message Deletion
Messages are removed from the system either through user selection or through auto-
deletion operations defined by the system administrator.
•User deletion: Users specify messages to be deleted by moving them to the Deleted
folder. The system then deletes messages that are older than six hours during the
Voice Mail Maintenance operations performed by ShoreWare at 2:00 am each day.
•Auto deletion: ShoreWare provides voice message auto-deletion for administrators
to conserve system storage resources. Messages are stored for a period specified by
an administrator, then permanently removed from the system. Users receive a
message informing them of the imminent auto deletion of their message. The range
of valid retention periods is between 30 and 2000 days.
ShoreWare defines retention periods for two classes of messages:
—Class 1: Messages in the Saved folder OR Messages marked as Unheard.
—Class 2: Messages in the Inbox folder AND Messages marked as Heard.
Retention periods for the message classes are defined independently of each other.
Administrators can also disable auto deletion. Refer to your administrator for more
information and to determine the retention period for your messages.
