Yes I belive after sp2 or sp3 for exchange they added a mailbox manager. From there you can assign times on how long you want to keep messages. We have ours set up to clean out the deleted folder anything older than 90 days and our sent items anything older than 60 days. To get there open your Exchang Management counsol go to Recipient Policies, then creat a new policy and select Mailbox Management. You can choose your settings there.
