Symptoms

The imarchive command does not delete emails.

When moving from Messaging Server (MS) 6.3 to Oracle Communications Messaging Server 7u4-25.01(7.0.4.25.0) 64bit (built Apr 24 2012), the imarchive command does not support the "delete" option; it only flags emails as archived.

How can I remove emails in the message store that have been archived using the imexpire command with the archive option?

I understand that the imarchive command apparently only now marks the message as archived or will stub the message.  But, why does the imexpire command not remove/discard the email in the message store when using the archive attribute in the command.

Example:

The messages are archived ok, but they are not marked for deletion.  I am using the operational archiving mode to move messages to our AXSONE archiver and then need to remove the archived messages from the store.  How can I accomplish this?
