account expiring

I would like to have an account to expire if it has not been accessed via pop3 or imap for at least 30 days. In that case a script would be run to update a mysql database and delete the account.

unfortunately, I have no idea of how to do such a thing ... lol

any help? thx

I've no idea how to do that, but I'm sure you're going to need to give more information so you can get a good answer.

This info might help a lot:
What distro are you running?
What mail server are you using?
What does the mysql DB store that needs updating?
