I know that fetchmail can be configured to leave mail on the server (usually done with the keep uidl keyword combination), but is there a way to configure it to leave mail on the server for a specified minimum period of time and delete them thereafter?

For example, suppose I want messages to remain on the server for 48 hours after they have been downloaded, and then be deleted on the next fetchmail invocation against that server.

I am mostly interested in solutions that work with POP3.
