Is this for a personal system or an ISP/company/email-host?

If person system: it's *trash*, don't store old stuff in it!

If business, and you are telling users "Trash older than 180 days
will be automatically deleted", you should use the IMAP protocol
to do it.  The mailing list for the imapd that you use would be 
the place to ask the proper way to do it.
