    Any way I can automatically delete messages older than XX days from the spam box created by spamassassin?

    Thanks - Bill

    We'd love to know about this as well. We have many customers inquiring. We are about to run some tests just to see if we can find a way, but if someone already has the knowledge, please speak up!

    Thanks for the link.

    I don't want to delete them automatically, which is what that seems to offer -- I want to delete the messages in there that are older than a specified number of days.

    On a per-user basis, I could probably rename a spam folder to a "pending delete" folder every week or month using a cron job (deleting the existing one if it existed). But I'd prefer a system-wide solution.

    This program may do what you want.

    http://archivemail.sourceforge.net/

    I use it on another system to manage quarantined email that I have to keep for a specific number of days. It can be used to delete instead of archive.
