Well, it's been about two months now, so I'm assuming this isn't going to
make it in, or isn't really a priority ?   It's a shame, as I spent the
better part of a day patching this against HEAD, as asked.  Not to mention
the fact that it solves all the problems from the original request (which
was the oldest of all feature requests), with the exception of the
archiving feature.  I'm sure it could be extended to provide this,

I think I may have not made myself clear on all the functionality before,
so I'm hoping explaining this again will make it more attractive and
perhaps more likely to make it into mainline Horde/IMP.  

This patch will allow you to have per folder options for the number of
days after which messages will be purged.  It creates a nice folder tree on
the maintenance tasks screen for the user where they may set the max number
of days emails will be kept for that folder.  Administrators have
additional options as well, being able to set the max number of days any
user may keep messages in any folder (-1 being no limit).  Administrators
may also allow/disallow users to skip maintenance on login.

I know you guys are busy and hard at work on more central development
items, so please let me know if I can help further, as I said, I'm not
familiar with the current development path of Horde, but I might be able to
spend more time / get more allocated at work, if there is any interest. 
However, I've already patched against HEAD, so I'm not sure what remains to
be done at this point.
