Yes, set the "expire" annotation on the folder.  For example, we set
this to 365 on the user's sent-mail folder and to 14 for the users SPAM

You can also use the ipurge command, like -
  sentPurge cmd="ipurge -s -X -f -d 365 user.*.sent-mail" at=0000
  trashPurge cmd="ipurge -s -X -f -d 45 user.*.Trash" at=0100
  spamPurge cmd="ipurge -s -X -f -d 14 user.*.SPAM" at=0200
} - in cyrus.conf
