I have had to leave my beloved outlook express and use live mail when I got a new laptop with win7. I think I was able to find an option in OE that allowed me to have mail over 3 months, or 3 days or whatever, from the folder. Am I hallucinating? Did I do that in OE? I really want that with live mail. Hope you can help.

thanks, Frank

Are you trying to automatically remove old messages from the server or from your computer?

Thanks for the response. I want the stuff over, say three months old, to be deleted automatically from the SERVER. Windows live mail must have an option for this but i can't find it. thanks, Frank

It should be under Tools>Accounts>mail tab>select your account>Properties button.
The setting you want will be on the Advanced tab of the Properties dialogue.

Thanks for the help.

Although the path in my version of Win 7 (starter) was not the same as the one you gave but I got to where I had to and got it done. best, Frank
