I use a Perl script to do something similar. Each night, I hypermail into a folder corresponding to the current month. On the first day of a new month, it looks for a folder by that name, which doesn't exist. This signals the creation of a new folder, and the erasure of all the old mail. This is not *exactly* what you're after, but it may be a start.

I'm attaching the Perl code. It's a short script, but I'd love to hear of a better way, if anyone's got one.
