I was somewhat apologetic about the lack of delete-after-N-days
features in Linux mail clients, since my mom relies on that to keep
mail volumes manageable and yet still be able to share mail with other people.
Then a message on email@example.com alerts me to the fact that
some people use something like this in their crontab:
Â» # m h dom mon dow command Â» # auto archive debian-user messages over 14 days old Â» 40 8 * * * archivemail -q -d 14 —delete imap://mrroach:firstname.lastname@example.org/INBOX.debian-user
I’ll install archivemail on the Lifebook and see if it does the work…
