I'm using Evolution 2.26.1 under Ubuntu Linux 9.04.

Use Cyrus IMAPd IMAP server and set expiration on the relevant

Several points here:

1) This not part of standard IMAP, so Evo doesn't support it in the user

2) Most users can't dictate what server-side software is run.

3) Even if the server is Cyrus, expiring a folder requires either a
login account on the server, or the intervention of an administrator.
