I'd like to automatically archive certain emails if I haven't done it myself after they're, say, a week old. I could use a filter to archive these emails, but I'd have to run the filter myself manually.

Is there a way to automatically run a Gmail filter on existing emails every day?

    Not with Gmail all by itself. Gmail filters only act on messages when they first arrive. You would need to look to a third-party to do what you're looking to do. I don't know of any off-hand, though. – ale May 13 '13 at 20:20

    That's doable with Google Apps Script. – Jacob Jan Tuinstra May 13 '13 at 20:42
