We use a server-based filter for unsolicited email that does quite good a job (yes, it’s Brightmail).
Nobody is perfect, so some messages still land in the Inbox and need a human touch. There’s a COM-AddIn for Outlook that adds a command bar to submit the junk mail where it belongs.
So far, so good.
However, the submission is itself a message with the questionable item attached and will, by default, be copied to the Sent Items folder.
Diligent as I am, I’m archiving what I’ve written to other people.
But how do I get rid of the junk in the jar?
I want to set the Expiry Date to Now and wait for the AutoArchive magic to happen. Not manually, because manually I could delete the whole thing right away.
I need a Rule.
The action I need is not provided, so I’m writing my own.
