    Delete selected emails after 3 months (Outlook 200

    Is there a way to have certain emails automatically deleted after 3 months?

    I keep a lot of emails in case I need to refer back to them or follow up. I mark the ones I need to follow up on with a red flag and then when I'm done I mark with an orange flag. I like to keep the orange flagged emails for a couple of months in case I need to refer back to them. Is there a way to have the orange flagged emails automatically deleted after 3 months? Or does anyone have any other suggestions.

    Thanks!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by JohnBF on 16-Aug-05 14:48. Corrected 'ThisOutlookSession'.)</P>The Archive function is not clever enough to discriminate by Flag, it will just move everything out according to Folder settings. It can be done by code via the application startup event - do you want the "automatically' to be every day, or once a month, or what? is there a specific Folder or PST this would apply to?

    Attached is some untested code you can try, it has to go in the "ThisOutlookSession" module.
