Hello, I would like to know if there is anybody working on implementing auto-expiring folders in evolution. I think one good way of doing it would be to improve the filter system in order to have per-folder filters and the posibility to schedule this filters (for example on exit). Having this kind of feature would bring incredible functionality to current filter system. You should have another filter config screen when you define filters on a per folder basis. Each filter could be applied to all, or only a selection of folders, and each filter could be run on demand or at a certain event (for example, exiting, going offline, receiving new email). With this two feature we would have long standing feature request solved, for example auto-expiring folders should be trivial using a filter to delete messages older than N days on your prefered folders when going offline or exiting.
I was thinking of implementing the auto-expiring folder as an EPlugin, but I think that using filters would be the right thing to do, and having per-folders schedulable filters will solve not only this but a lot of other requests. I don't know how difficult this could be, but I think it would be way out of the posibilities of an EPlugin, and quite easier if reusing existing message filters code. Is there any posibility to get this implemented? Or should I just start coding my auto-expiring folders plugin :-D Regards, - german PS: Please CC to me as I'm not subscribed to the list. _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
