Delete messages automatically

Hello, I have a question: Can you create some kind of rule that deletes messages from a folder every so often or something similar?

I need the messages in a folder to be deleted every so often according to some criteria that can be set

Thanks

I would first check the filter options in Roundcube. Those run even when not logged in.

I would next opt to see if a client has this feature. I use Thunderbird which has a lot of options for filters.

How I can open Roundcube? or is it an other package?

Navigate to https://box.example.com/mail.

I’m going to keep looking … thanks

To activate auto delete add autopurge to the folders in this file:

./etc/dovecot/conf.d/15-mailboxes.conf

Change by adding autoexpunge = 30d. e.g. (30d=30days):

mailbox INBOX {
auto = subscribe
autoexpunge = 30d
}
mailbox Spam {
special_use = \Junk
auto = subscribe
autoexpunge = 7d
}
mailbox Drafts {
special_use = \Drafts
auto = subscribe
autoexpunge = 30d
}
mailbox Sent {
special_use = \Sent
auto = subscribe
autoexpunge = 30d
}
}

p.s. It will only delete new mails existing ones won’t be deleted.
