make a cron-job, which checks your mailbox every day. i've attached a
script, which removes all messages, which are older that 7 days.
please test this thing thoroughly, as i programmed it now from scratch.
possibly there is a simpler way to do this ...
Hi! I'm a .signature virus! Copy me into your ~/.signature, please!
Linux - the last service pack you'll ever need.
# the following line would be "MB=$1", if you wanted to pass the mailbox
# to process as an argument to the script
formail -s bash -c "IFS=''; b=\`cat\`; test \$(date -d \"\$( echo \$b|formail -x Date )\" +%s ) -ge \$(date -d \"7 days ago\" +%s ) && echo -e \"\$b\n\n\"" <$MB >$MB.new && mv $MB.new $MB
