AS/400 Faxing
We are looking for a way in which we can manage the retention days of our sent faxes (outqueue - QFFSNDSAV). I thought this would be manageable through CFGFAXSRV *clnupjob but doesn't appear to include the saved faxes in the cleanup. Is anyone familiar with how this can be done? Thanks for your help.

Software/Hardware used:
AS/400 - 520

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should be able to treat this just like any other spool file.

You can use EXPDATE & DAYS options on the printer file.

If the printer file name is constant you change just do a CHGPRTF,

Else, you will may need to go int CL programs and do OVRTPRT.

The above steps will put an expiration date on your spool files. Then you need to schedule running of the DLTEXPSPLF command to remove them once they are expired.

I just have that scheduled to run once a week on a Sunday morning.

    IBM posted an example spool file cleanup command - DLTOLDSPLF.  Since all the code is included it can be modified to fit your requirements.  Its works well.  We have used it for years.
