Sent messages are now stored for eternity with only a manual extremely time consuming one by one method if one were to even realized and decide to thin out the sent messages folder.  Since the loss of all data several years ago I now have 1194 messages in just one account.

I request a method where by each message sent displays a dialog box that asks a question of, "How long to save this sent message?".  Also a setting placed in email preference under the sent message configuration as a new place that allows the user to set it for specific senders email address and whether or not to display the dialog box.  This would default to display the dialog at installation.  

The default would be forever, then stored settings of:
     1 year
     6 months
     90 days
     1 month ( 30 days)
     15 days
     7 days
     1 day
and a user custom setting of blank number of  days.

Of course this could be an extension but build in would be better.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

If there is another place to put feature requests then I apologize but there was not date about feature requests on the Seamonkey Development page or left Navigation column.

I realize new requests are not a priority now but more direct links would make new users and long time users happier to have a place to go that shows interest in future ideas.

Thank you
