SetGroomAge Method

The SetGroomAgemethod sets the groom age setting (in the registry) for the PagerJobQueueobject.

PagerJobQueue.SetGroomAge(lngAgeInDays Long)


Maximum age of messages in the Sent and Failed folders. Messages older than this will be deleted. The range for this setting is -1 to 7200. Use a value of -1 to indicate that messages should never be deleted.

Return Value

The following example shows how to set the PagerJobQueueobject to delete sent or failed messages after 60 days.

Dim objPagerJobQueue, blnOK

Set objPagerJobQueue = CreateObject("OPScrUtil.PagerJobQueue")
