Set each folder with an expire property. Right click the folder -> Properties 
-> Expire. 
Set Kmail folder settings to expire old messages on exit:

From the manual:
Expire old messages:
Delete old messages from folders, according to the rules in each folder's 
Properties dialog.
The Old Message Expiry section lets you automatically delete old messages when 
you exit KMail (depending on your settings in KMail's Folders configuration 
page) or via File->Expire All Folders. 
Messages that are expired are deleted. They are not moved to trash, so be 
careful with this setting.
