    It's called Archiving. Right-click your Sent Items folder, hit Properties, Autoarchive.

    Hi lwears

    As Anne pointed out, AutoArchive can be configured to delete messages in the Sent Items folder after 7 days.

    It's fairly quick to set that up. :)


    To create a Rule, your messages need to meet certain conditions, "after X amount of days" does not appear to be an option in the Rules.
