Fetchmail: leav messages on server for 3 days

I have an open source email server (zimbra incase anyone is asking:-)

I use fetchmail to download messages from several different pop3 servers for users. I would like to use the 'option keep' but would like to then delete the messages from the pop3 serve after a specfied time period stretching from 3 days to a week.

is there a way to do this?

The functionality is simillar to oultooks 'leave messages on server' option
