I use a tall rxvt which does it very well.

got this from one of the muttrcs on mutt.org
set pager_index_lines=`zsh -c 'temp=($(stty size)) ; expr $temp / 5 + 1'`

I'm just moreless looking to set a timescale of eg 10 days. Once it gets older than that, it gets deleted (or archived, it'd be moreorless the same). I didn't like pine's deletion thing cos it moves everything which means if you're in the middle of a conversation, you lose all previous threaded mails (this becomes more obvious you when you use mutt's threading).
I was thinking about it and you could go a lot further in this. eg you could dlete entire threads together and only delete threads whose most recent email is of some age. But this is starting to get pretty complex then.
