Subject: I want to expire some even if unread
Date: Fri, 12 Jun 2020 17:36:31 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hello all

I'm looking for a way, just on certain groups, to expire messages 
based ONLY on the fact that they're old, regardless of whether 
they're read or not. I won't remember to activate a special switch 
every x weeks or whatever, so I'm looking for something I can "set 
and forget". Perhaps this type of setup is considered too likely 
to cause unexpected data loss, but if I lose these particular 
groups by accident it won't really matter.

Automatic catch-up to a certain point, maybe? I'm having a hard 
time finding information on this.

It would be a nice bonus if ticked messages were kept, but I'd 
rather lose a few ticked messages than have no automatic expiry.
