I would like to keep using imap (because directory synchronization and such) instead of pop, yet I also want to configure thunderbird to delete (expunge) emails from the server after a certain number of days while keeping them intact offline. The reason for this is that I want to keep an offline only archive because it is more secure.

I currently only see options to delete everywhere after N days or delete locally after N days, but I want to keep local and delete from the server. It looks like the server software my email provider uses doesn't have a setting for it either, so doing this in thunderbird is my best chance of getting ut done.
