Hi there,

I am really troubling with archiving my IMAP mails. So far I was using standard rules, which have a major drawback - they only work on incoming mails. But I want to copy only mails to my local mailbox that are older than 25 days. The reason is that by copying all incoming mails, mail also copies all spam and unimportant mails into the local mailbox. However I only want to copy the mails that I was able to read and consider to be important, which I am able to do within a couple of days. However, I am not able to to that on a daily basis and that is why I chose the 25 days window, because my hoster deletes them automatically after 30 days. I read in a lot of forums that rules wont help, since they only work for incoming mails, therefore I am guessing that I would need a script because I want this to be automated and only applied to mails that passed the 25 day timeframe. Is the anybody that could help me out? Thank you so much in advance.
