    Default delete mail in a folder after x days

    I am looking for a way to automatically delete messages in a folder older than a certain number of days. I don't think that it is possible, but I thought I'd ask. There doesn't even seem to be a way to empty out the trash every 7 days or anything like that.

    Do I need to file a feature request?

    Actually it's currently an admin setting, your junk & trash folders by default are set to empty every 30 days.
    This can be set per user or COS so ask your administrator (if your not) if you'd like your value lowered. It's at the bottom of the advanced tab > trash folder message lifetime, etc.

    I know there's an open RFE to display a disclaimer on those two folders like: "Messages that have been in Trash more than 30 days will be automatically deleted."

    Search bugzilla to see if there's an RFE for setting junk/trash lifetime end-user side. (This also might be one of those things that could go along with active filters-in terms of where to implement it vs wasting space in a right click option)

    This will be in 5.0:

    Bug 13435 - User-definable expiration policy for systems folders

    Currently we're only supporting retention policies for system folders (inbox, sent, trash and junk). If you need retention policies for other folders, please file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.

    Default Zimbra 5.02 - this feature is broken?

    Since I upgraded from 4.10 to 5.02, this feature no longer seems to work for me, and junk mail is accumulating.

    Anyone else spotted this / is there a fix?

    Thanks
