One of the few things I miss about Outlook, having made the move to OS X and Apple Mail, is the ability on a folder to set it to archive or delete old (for a given value of old) mail at regular intervals. Seeing as I subscribe to a fairly significant number of mailing lists on various subjects, I collect a fair few mails over time. Thing is, I don’t necessarily want to keep them forever.
For example, I have 7500-odd messages for CF-Talk since some time in December. I really only want to maintain the most recent two weeks’ worth to keep up with what’s going on the the CF-Talk world. For anything older, I can go to the web-based archives at House of Fusion.
Is there some way in Mail, or some add-on which exists to let me do this automatically? I specifically don’t want to archive the mails. I want them deleted.
Let me know.
