Re: auto delete email in mailbox

Ed (and everybody else who helped with this)
This looks like what I am looking for. I have not tested it out yet, but I think it will do the trick. <keeping fingers crossed>. I used your search terms and added "delete" to them in google and am coming up with quite a few programs to do this. Amazing what the correct key words can do for you in a search engine.

A quick google search came up with the following:

I've never used it, and if it deletes all your mail and you don't have
backups, don't blame me :-)

I used a google search string of "mbox old mail" and this will get you
heading in the right direction.
