ProtonMail automatic deletion of Spam and Trash emails in iOS

To enable automatic spam and trash deletion in ProtonMail iOS app, log in to your account, navigate to account settings, and select the ‘Auto Delete’ option. With this setting enabled, all emails residing in the spam and trash folders will be automatically purged after 30 days, saving you valuable storage space.

This feature is currently available to ProtonMail users with paid plans, across both web and mobile applications.

Gmail already has this feature in place for all users. All emails in the spam and trash folder are automatically and permanently deleted after 30 days. On the other hand, Yahoo auto deletes Trash emails after 7 days and spam emails after 30 days.
