I would like to see the feature added that allows us to delete specific emails or a group of emails based on the results of a search filter.

This would enable us to comply with GDPR "right to be forgotten"

This is already on our roadmap. I don't have a timeline for you, but it should be sooner rather than later.

As a workaround, you can run a search for a specific item (usually by using the subject + date together) and then use the Retention Policies feature to remove it. The issue is that retention runs on Friday night, so it's not immediate.

Thanks,
