How to get Sylpheed to keep messages for X amount of time

Postby liuslink » 2018-07-12 03:09

I have been Googling for a while but found no answer as yet. How does one get Sylpheed to store inbox messages for only one month or two weeks?

I'm too using Sylpheed, and I have not seen such opton.

However, time related things in linux/unix are done as cron jobs. In this case it would search your [Mail/Inbox], and scan each mail-file, and based on file creation time do what you want, delete or move to somewhere else or process next file.

It would be a good learning process, net and your Debian do have a lot of info.
