I get a lot of email from online retailers offering sale codes and such. I want to keep these in my inbox to remind me of sales, but after a couple of weeks I want them to go away automatically. I can't seem to figure out a rule that can identify mail in my inbox from certain recipients that is older than 14 days and just delete it. If I use "any" condition, then it deletes all email regardless of age, if I use the "all" condition, I can't put multiple senders in the same rule. Do I need to create separate rules for each sender? Any guidance will be appreciated.

    You might consider creating a separate mailbox for those e-mails and applying a rule only to that mailbox regardless of sender. I realize that would reduce your visibility of those e-mails, so might not be entirely satisfactory.
