Thanks for your reply. I am now closer to what I want. "B e" some how
does not delete mails marked as "E". May be I have some settings
missing. However, I do have nnmail-expire-wait set to 7 and
nnimap-expunge-on-close set to ask. If I understand
it correctly with such setup it has to ask me if I want to delete all
messages marked as "E" seven and more days ago. What do I miss?
I can delete a message using "B del". I remember using  more complicated
command and deleting all messages marked as expired.
