How do I set up parameters to delete trash

This new address book is horrible.  Also how do I set parameters to delete certain TRASH.  I do not want to delete all the trashk but how about setting up number of days in trash, etc.


Re: How do I set up parameters to delete trash

The new format has no deletion schedules that you can edit.  Emails are kept indefinitely until you delete them yourself.  The only exceptions are Spam and Trash------------------------


Spam is stored for 7 days or 2,000 messages, whichever comes first
Trash is stored for 14 days or 5,000 messages, whichever comes first


You cannot alter those schedules.
