Allow deleting all messages by date in Global Mailbox mailboxes.

When using Global Mailbox mailboxes, you cannot delete All Messages by date.

It is a common, best practice, use-case to set up at least two mailbox delete jobs in IBM Sterling B2B Integrator.

1) Delete all messages that no longer extractable based on age.

2) Delete all messages, regardless of extractibility based on a greater age.

So you end up with, for example, jobs deleting all non-extractable messages over 2 days old and all messages over 7 days old.


Right now this functionality does not exist for Global Mailbox mailboxes, which makes the management of older messages more difficult.


I suggest we add both of these options to Global Mailbox mailboxes.  Either through the existing Mailbox Delete Service or through other means.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community.

    While we do have some of this functionality we do not have all. Today we can purge all "expired messages" that are older than a certain date
    expired means:

    a) extracability date has passed b) # of extractions has been done already and it's not extracable anymore

    With that being stated, we agree that this idea would bring additional value to Global Mailbox, and as such have added it to our roadmap. Check back periodically for updates.
