    Please add a new feature to manually select the auto deletion of junk mail to an individually selectable interval (like every 3, 5 10, and 30, 60, 90 days.

    I had big trouble with the Junk Mail File recently! Here in Germany, in the Junk-Mail File header it said "Junk Emails will be deleted AFTER 30 days."

    But some important Emails got deleted after 10 days already while I was on a trip. I complained about it in the German Community.
    Microsoft Germany wrote then to me, it would have been clear that "Junk Emails will be deleted WITHIN 30 days."

    So I had to explain Microsoft Germany that there is a HUGE difference between the words AFTER and WITHIN!

    Anyhow, my important Emails were lost and could not be restored!

    Now since just recently, in the Junk-Mail File header it says "Junk Emails will be deleted after 10 days."

    But this cannot be the solution to shorten the deadline to 10 days. Therefore, I root for an individually selectable interval.
