Create rule to automatically delete old messages
« on: July 02, 2022, 11:10:27 AM »
Hello! Long time user, first time poster!

I have been unable to figure out a way in Roundcube to create a sieve rule to automatically delete messages older than a specified age.

Is this possible?

Sieve works as part of the delivery process so it can't do anything about messages already in your mailbox.

In 1.6 the puge trash on logout option will be extended to include a puge messages older then 30, 60 or 90 days option. This only affects the trash folder but may be it will help?
Roundcube Plugins: Contextmenu, SpamAssassin Prefs, and moreā€¦

Oh, right, yeah, wasn't thinking there.

I'm actually looking for a solution to automatically delete messages in the inbox of a catchall.
