Delete based on age of email?

Hi all,

Question for ye:

Is it possible to set a rule either in Rules or via Sieve that will delete based on the age of a mail.

If sender: X
AND IF
Date: >30 days
THEN Delete

My aim is to automatically delete (or send to trash) subscription based emails once they're past their prime as it were.

Rules and sieve work on new incoming emails. So not really applicable for dealing with emails already received.

To achieve what you want, I suggest shifting your subscriptions to a folder, maybe called "Subscriptions", and set that folder to delete emails older than 30 days.
The setting for deleting emails after a particular time is found under the advanced settings for a folder and is called Auto-purge.

Gardenweed, that'll do the job perfectly.
I got so caught up think about rules I never even considered another way.

Many thanks!
