Happy memorial day from our family to yours! Let us remember those courageously gave their lives. I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird for more than a decade, on multiple Operating Systems, and this is my first post in this great community. Overall, long time Mozilla user and a fan!
My objective is to keep only last N days of emails in order to save disk space. I would like to set up 2 gmail accounts.
Right after setting up the email account, if I change settings from Synchronization & Storage page to download emails from only most recent N days, Thunderbird should respect that setting. Most importantly, this setting should only limit the scope of downloading emails, and under any circumstances, should not delete emails on the remote server.
Right after setting up the email account, Thunderbird aggressively starts downloading emails regardless its size or age. If I change settings to sync most recent N days, I still see old emails. These old emails do not away - even after restating the application or even restating the computer. After referring to another post on this forum I also tried using 'Compact folder' option followed by restating the application. It did not seem to do the trick.
Given the above, I am wondering, somehow - if I changed Thunderbird's default Synchronization & Storage settings to download only most recent N days' emails, would it help me achieve my goal? If it would, I would like to know how.
FWIW - I might be using Mozilla Thunderbird 68.8.1 (32-bit) portable, in Windows 7.
P.S. : I am open to any approach that helps me achieve my goal.
