deleting old mails from server

  • Answered
The quota of some employees is exceeded rapidly, deleting mails manually from webmail is too difficult, how can i make an automated solution to delete the old mail (older than 20 days for example)?
Hello Ehab_Alfeky,

Thank you for your question on deleting emails. Yes, the different email clients such as Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. have settings in the IMAP configuration that allow for emails to be deleted after a specified number of days. This is usually disabled by default, but can easily be changed in each user's profile.

In ThunderBird for instance, it is under the "Synchronization & Storage" settings.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
