how to create a filter for all emails having a date in the future

Posted

Lately I've been getting more and more spam with a date in the future. Presumably they do this so that the spam always appears along with the newest emails in my inbox. Can I make a filter to automatically route all emails dated, say, tomorrow or later to the junk folder?

That would depend on your email service. In the screenshot, Gmail doesn't seem to afford any date filter.

You can create filters in Thunderbird to do what you're looking for, however, the "date" field doesn't increment automatically. You would need to edit the filter when the "date" expires.
