In my $HOST:/etc/cyrus.conf I have:

  # this is required
  checkpoint    cmd="ctl_cyrusdb -c" period=30

  # this is only necessary if using duplicate delivery suppression,
  # Sieve or NNTP
  delprune      cmd="cyr_expire -E 3 -X 0" at=0400

  # this is only necessary if caching TLS sessions
  tlsprune      cmd="tls_prune" at=0400

So each morning at 4:00 AM local time the cyrus expire
should run. My concern is ipurge removing *too many*
messages, etc.
