Quite often, old letters can be stored in e-mail, which have already lost their relevance and are no longer needed, but still take up space. It is necessary to remove them from time to time, but this process can be automated. Thunderbird has a filter creation functionality with which you can organize the automatic deletion of messages. To do this, do the following:
|Importance||less than||High||The filter will be applied only to those messages for which the value “Importance»Normal or lower.|
|Tags||does not contain||Important||The filter will not be applied to emails tagged with "Important". You can add many similar conditions to save emails with different labels.|
|Age in days||more than||365||The filter will only apply to emails older than 365 days. You can specify an arbitrary value.|
|Copy message to||Remote to Local folders||This action is only necessary if the letters need to be saved. The destination directory for saving may be different.|
|Delete message||—||Action to delete a message. This action should be placed last in the action list.|
