Automatic Purge



The fax server can automatically purge its fax database based on the age of the fax records.  If you want to use automatic purge please note that purge means exactly that.  The records will be deleted from the database and thereafter irretrievable.  This purge activity will not delete external files that were saved by the fax server in response to settings in the section 'Fax File Storage'.  The purge activity only acts on records in the fax server's database.


The auto purge activity is handled efficiently by a background thread.  When the fax server is started, the auto purge operation will run approximately 5 minutes after startup.  Once completely the thread will go to sleep until exactly 24 hours later when it will be run once again.
