Hi Peter,

sorry but I've not found the new option under it is probably not yet updated :-(

But anyway this is not exactly what I intended :-(

Actually I delete the e-mails manually. What I was thinking about is a filter to export messages older than a date !!

Hypermail exports today all my e-mails. But the e-mail I got this year I need them online. So I do not need to export them. But the e-mails I recived last year and the year before should be archieved ;-)

I though of a filter telling hypermail to process only e-mails older than a given date. Messages newer than this date do not get exported.

But I must say, the option "delete_older" is a good complementation, as it reduces my work, deleting the e-mail afterwards :-)
