Re: expiring old mail from a mbx file

I need a script able to remove all messages delivered before a
certain date to a mailbox and still there.
Some users use to do this with certain pop3 clients, so they
want absolutely the same function even if they shift to reading e-mail
with squirrelmail.
(they save "important" messages in differnt folder, but leave
"minor" messages in the inbox so they can access again fron a different
place if necessary, but such " forgotten" fessages must be cleaned to
avid uncontrolled growth of mailbox)

Nice and easy to do with Maildirs ... any reason you have mbox files instead?

Do you want the messages deleted or just archived..?
