You can have certain folders (Sent, Deleted, Junk) auto-expunge after a set time period (in admin: Configuration->Domains->Edit a domain->Messages tab).

However, there's no way to auto-expunge the Inbox. (You can, but then you have to also delete all other folders too, using the last checkbox option in that window).

Since all folders are *technically* the same, then this just means that it's not in the web admin interface, but you could write a chron script maybe...? Tech support said it could probably be done, and pointed me to the API.

Anyone familiar with this, has maybe done this already and has a chron script or something else to share? (I'd post this in the Developer's area but I don't have access to that forum).

Thank you!

If someone knows how to do this, we would appreciate it too. We've been looking for the same thing, but for the Calendar folder. We have clients that use Calendar heavily, and they easily have more than 10,000 items in the calendar folder. We would like a way to auto-expunge them very much.

Thanks.

tonyswu - Keep in mind that if you do find a solution, this is how calendar entries are stored:

Items (emails, calendar events) are stored for when they were created. That's not an issue for an email (comes in at 11am, is stored at 11am), but a calendar event I create today for an event in 2014...it's recorded in the system as today for auto-deletion purposes. The same thing for repeating events - it will delete the entire series, not just old events, since the entire series is actually only stored once, when it was created.
