Yes, it could do the trick, but anyway why can't we do it in more elegant/easy way like
->right click certain folder
->select "auto-expiring"  from contexted menu
->setup XX days in dialog
since it's really a useful function. Should I address a feature request?

Using "Date Received" should avoid this problem. I always use this for
sorting my folders as the Date: header is unreliable.

What I'd really like to have is this: In KDE's KMail 
(which I used a
long time ago, before I switched to Evolution), you can 
set messages in
your mail folders to auto-expire. That is especially 
useful for folders
holding mailing lists: Just define that for your 
mailing-list folder,
messages older than a month should automatically be 
deleted whenever you
"purge" your mail folder. Now either manually purge the 
folder, or set
the program up so that it automatically does this every time it is
closed, and there you go: All messages that are older 
than the age you
specified automatically get deleted (ideally, there would 
be an option
on a message-by-message basis to exclude important or otherwise
interesting messages from being automatically removed, but I can't
remember if KMail has a feature like that).

I haven't found any "native" support for a feature like this in
Evolution - I can only imagine that it might be possible 
to do this
using normal mail-filters (on the other hand, these can 
not be applied
to whole folders natively, but only to (an) individual message(s),

hi nils,

well, you could set up a "date received | is before | a 
time relative to
the current time" incoming filter and apply it manually, 
but be aware if
you have enabled automatically applying of filters to 
incoming mails,
that mails sent by people with very wrong dates on their windows
machines (hehe ;-) will also directly go into trash.
setting up filters that *only* apply manually is not supported yet
<>. :-/
