    I'm stumped. I was asked today if there is a way to have Gmail automatically empty the trash folder daily or at least faster than every 30 days days. Manually clicking the empty trash now link is not a solution and neither is leaving a mail program open outside of Gmail and having it download and delete the emails. I checked the lists of scripts at Scripts Tagged gmail and did not find a solution there either. Any suggestions?

    There is no way that I know of. I manually clear out my spam folder regularly. The trash folder I let Gmail manage since it doesn't count against your storage space IIRC.
