I have a forward rule configured whereby online orders coming from our OS Commerce site are automatically CC'd to a seperate mailbox for my MD.
However, he's a bit lazy in the respect that he doesn't delete these mails when he's seen them.
Every so often I will open up the mailbox using Horde, and clean out a few months worth of emails.
Are there any automated tasks that would do this for me. on say a monthly basis.
Something along the lines, on the 1st of the month, clear out anything older than 30 days.

Hi @keat63


You might be able to create a one-liner that uses mtime to remove messages older than x days and add it as a cron such as:


Code:
find /path/to/files* -mtime +5 -exec rm {} \;
mtime +5 is older than 5 days.


You can also manually remove items like this through cPanel>>Mail>>Email Disk usage
