Way too lazy.  Create a sub folder under all 16 of your folders. Now select a 
folder. Right Click on folder, from the menu select Expire.... . Left click 
Expire read mails after and Expire unread mails after. Set both to 30 days. 
Under Expiry action: select Move to: then select the sub folder. Click OK. 
Now do this for your other 15 folders. Now messages will expire automatically 
every 30 days. Have fun tom.
