Option Undelete_HouRs=number Option Undelete_DAYs=number Option Undelete_WeeKs=number
The Undelete options let you specify how long deleted messages are retained in your mailbox file. For example,
Option Undelete_HouRs=48 Option Undelete_DAYs=2
are equivalent and say that messages can be discarded from the Deleted drawer after 48 hours (two days). For all options, the number must be an integer; thus you get a whole number of hours, days, or weeks.
You can set the retention time to zero with any of
Option Undelete_HouRs=0 Option Undelete_DAYs=0 Option Undelete_WeeKs=0
In this case, a message is just discarded when it is deleted. This means it cannot be undeleted with UnDELete.
