How do I expire messages

Usually keeping messages intact is a key feature of a mail system. However, you may wish to automatically delete message board posts, RSS feeds, and other objects after they reach a certain age.

Possible use cases:
  - High frequency mailinglists where you maintain offsite history
  - RSS-Feeds where you don't want a large backlog
  - Forums with ongoing discussions
  - Mailboxes for mobile clients that should have a limited number of messages

It can be configured at three different levels:
  - System default (//Administration->Edit site-wide configuration->Auto-purger//)
    - site wide configuration for public rooms
    - per private mailboxes
  - Floor Policy (//Administration->Add, change, or delete floors->[Choose Floor; Edit]->...?)
  - Per Room settings (//Advanced->Edit or delete this room->Message expire policy//)
    - Individual setting for this room
    - default floor policy
