Delete Inbox Messages

Post by ErikB » Sat Feb 27, 2021 4:29 pm

From Post Office Action, it should be possible to delete messages from the input folders if they are older than a certain date.
I have tried without success.
Immediately after I press OK, I get a message that they are deleted. This can't be true, as more than 15 Gb data should be removed.
Is this function running async. or what should I expect.

Hi,

I have tested this and it works. The delete will happen instantly. Have you inspected the "Inbox" folders for the mailboxes to see if the modified dates of the messages match your criteria for deletion?

Yes I did and nothing was deleted. I think the date format could be the problem?
Anyway I have used the utilityprogram MEpurge.exe and that works OK. In that program you specify number of days - not a specific date.
So I am satisfied for now.
