POP mail and deleting


I check my email using Evolution from a POP3 email server. I have the setting such that the emails are left on the server. However, it would be nice if they could be automatically deleted if they were older than X days. Eudora has a feature like this and it is very convinent. Is there a linux email program that will permit this; or perhaps an add-on for kmail or evolution?

thanks !!

I don't know if it has this feature (I only use IMAP) but mozilla-thunderbird handles emails well.

Yes, I use Thunderbird and leave my mails on the server for 7. The length of days can be changed.
