Your message looks like you are using Outlook, and therefore I assume the
Outlook plug-in.  If that is not the case, please let us know, as this reply
will be inappropriate.

If you want to automatically remove mail in a folder after a given number of
days, you can use the Outlook AutoArchive facility to do this (you can
choose to permanently remove mail rather than archive it in another .pst).

However, could you not simply mark all messages in the folder as read after
you examine it?  (Control-A, Control-Q).  Then it's just any messages that
are unread that you haven't examined.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
