mdaemon archiving

our company has public folders with thousands of emails. Right now every month or so I manually move the older emails to another public folder used as an archive.

I am wondering if there is a solution to auto archive emails after a certain number of days?

We don't really have a budget to purchase additional software to do this.

Did you setup the server to auto-archive all incoming messages to the public folder?  If so then you technically already archived them, I don't believe there is a way to automatically archive an archive through MDaemon.

You could probably write a script to do what you want, not sure if that is an acceptable route for you.

yes but this only archives per domain and user account. Any customization of folders is not taken into account.

I'd like to avoid using a script outside of the mdaemon environment for now if at all possible.

Everything I've seen says that what you want to do through MDaemon is not possible, it would have to be done with an external script.

We use Tbird for our IMAP mail. Maybe I could do it through that.

when you say script, at what level? could you show me an example?

I mean something like a vbscript, or maybe powershell... not sure, I don't do scripting in Windows.
