Kirk could you tell me how this can be done? I've tried using Rules but
they're limited.

I just tried a rule for this again, and it didn't work.

That might work for the digests but not for the 5 day temp messages. There
are too many messages I'll keep for a month or more.

I need a rule: 'delete mail from "Temp Save" if subject contains digest and
date sent is more than 1 day old"

Remember I  don't want messages left in my inbox nor other folders acted

How? Mail's rules have no provision for selecting a MailBox.
'Delete mail from mailbox "temp Save" when date sent is more than 5 days

Where is this setting? Not in Preferences/Accounts/Advanced.
Options are: immediately, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, when moved from inbox.
