    Default Sent Mail message lifetime

    Is there a way to set the lifetime of the sent mail folder?

    Default Don't know...

    But it seems like a good idea to me.

    Default Not built-in...

    But you could probably script this using zmmailbox to do a search (in:sent before:-4weeks or somesuch) and to then delete the results. Fire that off from cron nightly and you should be set.

    (Warning: test the search query before you start deleting mail!)

    Default kinda'

    Thanks, dkarp for the suggestion.

    I'm having trouble creating a script to do it, but I have figured out this much:

    ( either su zimbra or run zmmailbox in /opt/zimbra/bin/ )
    zmmailbox -a username -p password [ use an administrator account ]
    mbox> aa admin@domain.com password [ again, use an admin account ]
    mbox> sm user_name@domain.com [ open the mailbox of a user ]
    mbox> s "in:sent is before:-4weeks" [ do the search ]

    I still haven't figured out how to delete them, or how to put the whole thing into a script.

    Thanks for your help to get this far!
