I get news feeds from a range of sources, and I want Gmail to automatically delete them once they are out of date, so that if I am away from email for a few days, I don't have to delete all the out of date news emails.

for example:any email from: news...@your.abc.net.au recieved more than 3 days ago is no use reading, so I want gmail to send it to trash once it expires.

Sorry, there's not currently a way to do that.
