Hi all,
Is it possible in evolution 3.12.9 to have a message filter or something
similar that delete emails older than n days in a selected folder?

I don't know about 3.12.9 (because it's old and I don't have a copy),
but in the most recent version there is a filter condition of 'Date
recieved' with 'is before'-'<relative date>' and you can specify an
action of 'delete'.

The filter is present, but I don't want to apply it to my inbox, I've to
run it just to some subfolder. Defining this kind of filter will trigger
deletion also in inbox when hitting CTRL + Y. Do you think it's possible
to whitelist/blacklist some folder for filter execution?

The problem with filters is that they only apply to 'new' messages so
you would have to apply the filter manually.

That's not a problem, CTRL + Y is a quick way to do it.

In newer versions under folder properties (right click on folder,
select properties), there is an "AutoArchive" tab which does what you
want, but I'm fairly certain it doesn't exist in 3.12

Yes, I was searching for that feature because I've seen it in
Thunderbird. I can confirm that's not present in 3.12.9.

Unlikely I can't upgrade it, since it will require to also upgrade Gnome
and Debian.
