Mozilla mail and expiring old e-mail automatically


I just switched from Kmail to Mozilla mail. Kmail had a feature that you could set each folder to expire mail after a certain period of time, days, weeks whatever. This sort of auto cleaned my e-mail when it got old.

Does Mozilla mail have this feature? I can't find it anywhere. Surely they have this.

Please help. I like Mozilla bit I have to have this. If it doesn't, is there another e-mail program that does? Sends HTML though.

Thanks for the help. Sorry to be a pest. I don't ask a question for a long time and now I'm full of them.

OK guys. Does it have this feature?

Basically, BUMP.

There has to be something. Mozilla has to have thought of this before now.

OK. One more question then. Where do I go to ask them to add this "expire" feature? I found bug reports but it is not really a bug, even though it bugs me that it is not there.

Any clues would be nice.

Later

I subscribe to a ton of forums. I also do a good bit of system help via ssh. I get a lot of those too. I get a lot of email, very little spam though. It would be a lot easier to have it do it for me.

Since Kmail can do it, I'm sure Mozilla mail can to. I just need to let them know it is needed.

I did for the expire function and the feature request. I hate to submit it as a bug though. Maybe I need to learn to program and put the darn thing in myself. I may be dead and gone by then though.

hmm, are you sure mozilla mail doesn't have this feature?
Might be interesting to have a go at.

I can't find it and you see the posts above. I wish it had it. It sounds easy to add to me. It's not like Mozilla doesn't have any programmers.
