Polling interval for purging

Number of minutes between when the service will purge messages. In order to perform a purge, the service needs to examine each folder, and possibly emails for each user, which can be both time and resource intensive. It is recommended to time this so that it occurs only at off-peak times every few days, depending on the number of users configured on the server.
