Have a look at:
,----[ (info "(gnus)Expiring Mail") ]
| You do not have to mark articles as expirable by hand. Gnus provides
| two features, called "auto-expire" and "total-expire", that can help you
| with this. In a nutshell, "auto-expire" means that Gnus hits `E' for
| you when you select an article. And "total-expire" means that Gnus
| considers all articles as expirable that are read. So, in addition to
| the articles marked `E', also the articles marked `r', `R', `O', `K',
| `Y' and so on are considered expirable.
and this for IMAP:
,----[ (info "(gnus)Expiring in IMAP") ]
| Even though `nnimap' is not a proper `nnmail' derived back end, it
| supports most features in regular expiring (*note Expiring Mail::).
| Unlike splitting in IMAP (*note Splitting in IMAP::) it does not clone
| the `nnmail' variables (i.e., creating NNIMAP-EXPIRY-WAIT) but reuse
| the `nnmail' variables. What follows below are the variables used by
| the `nnimap' expiry process.
