I have something similar here (except that I edit the parameter

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(setq gnus-parameters
         (total-expire . t)
         (expiry-wait . 1)
         (expiry-target . "nnimap+zimbra:archive"))

You can look in the *Messages* buffer, there should be logs about
expiring. If there isn't, try increasing gnus's verbosity (setting
`gnus-verbose' to 10 for very very verbose, for instance).
