I’m running 2 openSUSE 11 servers.
One collects mail from the Internet using Exim and routes it to /var/mail/user
Second one collects it by POP3 and moves it to an maildir for IMAP access.
I’m currently flushing each message when collecting it by fetchmail.
If I was to collect it using a client like Thunderbird, I can set it to only delete messages that are a few days old.
Instead of flushing /var/mail/user everytime I collect mail, rather I want to keep mail that is 5 days old or younger.
Is there anyway of doing this with fetchmail?
If not fetchmail can I run a cron job on the server that deletes messages that are over 3 days old?
I can’t find an answer for this anywhere.
With fetchmail it seems to be keep all messages or flush each one each time it is downloaded.
