    Default [SOLVED] Automatically expunge sent mail folders?

    Does ZCS provide a function, to automatically expunge/delete the sent mail folders on the server side? I would like to trigger a deletion of all sent mails in the sent mail folders let's say for all emails older than 2 months. Is it possible to do this centralised?

    TIA

    It's in the Admin UI, COS/Email Retention Policy.

    As I see, only Trash and Spam folder can be automatically expunged. Or emails as a whole - but that's not what I want.

    Sorry I misread your post and thought you were talking about the Spam folder. Although you can do it via the cli as bdial has shown but I suppose my question would be, why? Might it not be better to keep the sent mail for any future queries that mat arise about the sent email?
    Regards

    @bdial, thank you very much for the command line.

    @Bill, it's always a matter of storage space, personal labour organisation and enterprise policy. As I see here, sent emails will lose its relevance quite fast. And I see other people always BCC themselves, to archive sent emails (which duplicates the data ammount).

    With automatic deletion, you are still free to organise important sent mails, but all those "Ok, thanks" emails will vanish.

    Thanks and /solved
