Email Disposition


Email messages that do not require retention or are only kept as long as needed by the user, but can be deleted at any time, include:

  • Personal materials
  • Duplicates
  • Unsolicited notices or invitations
  • Preliminary drafts
  • Materials maintained by other offices or individuals (see the email decision chart)
  • Requests for information

Determining the function or purpose of the message can help you identify its final disposition action:
