In Exchange 2003 you use recipient policies to create a management policy.

I have an article here on using exmerge if it helps but I think mailbox policies would be better.  My article doesn't cover deleting mail but it explains how to use exmerge.

Exmerge will help you with the task if you'd like to run it one time right now to clear out messages, and then let your database continue to grow as before. Policies will keep the mailboxes maintained to whichever level you'd like on an ongoing basis.
