Won’t it be good to have an expiry date button/ Category associated with each email that you send/receive. Before archiving, you could categorize an email as “Archive for ever” or short expiry “Expires in 7 Days”.
Imagine how many less emails will you have to browse through, with such a system. Off course the system will not delete any of your emails automatically , but present you with a list of expired emails which you can delete yourself, or hide/inactivate.
An average office user receives about 55-60 emails a day. counting replies, we are talking of more than 100 email communications a day. Typically not more than 15% of these emails have any data that will be used in future again.
It will be good to have all your non important emails that have no historical relevant data be purged or be hidden automatically.
Anyone working on such a plugin for Thunderbird yet ?
