On the server? I don't care. Who am I to decide when mail is to old?

1. find it
2. delete it

Finding can be done e.g. by using 'find' with option '-mtime'. Two
months old mail might be found by

 $>find `getent passwd vpopmail |cut -d : -f 6`/domains/*/ -type f \
        -name '[0-9]*' -path '*/Maildir/cur/*' -mtime +60
