you can put in your initfile (setq gnus-large-newsgroup 1000) 
You will then be prompted when entering a group only if it contains
more than a thousand message. You may also try (setq nnmail-expiry-wait 1)
By default, expired messages are only deleted after one week; this will
shorten that duration to one day. Finally there is the function 
gnus-summary-expire-articles which deletes all articles that are marked 
as expirable in the current group.

Hope that helps
