    There is probably an easier way, but the only suggestions I have for you would be to install ConfigServer's Mail Queues:

    http://www.configserver.com/

    It's very quick and easy to install, and then you can log into WHM and use Mail Queues to delete all emails older than x minutes/hours/days.

    "ConfigServer's Mail Queues" can only delete mails which are in EXIM queue, and will not be able to delete mails from any mailbox.

    you can use delete option available on few 3rd party IMAP mail services to delete mails on your account, I know they have delete all but don't know if they have a feature for specific dates.

    Yes, you are right -- I was thinking of Configserver Mail Manage. :eek:

    It can't select by date, but you can select all, and then deselect all mails after 1 August.
