Mozilla Thunderbird - Removing Posts from a group once read

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Weyoun the Dancing Borg, Sep 13, 2004.

  1. I am using Mozilla Thunderbird version 0.5.

    Is there a way to "expire" posts on my computer? In some groups I have
    over 10,000 messages backdated and I don't need them. Over time this
    seriously slows down my computer when I click on a new newsgroup.

    Is there a way to delete the threads or posts that are, say, over a week
    old? I don't just mean displaying them, but I mean actually removing
    them off the computer or put in an archive so that on startup
    Thunderbird just shows the recent posts (quickly).


    thanks!
