Recipient policies for Exchange 2003

I need some help in running multiple recipient policies in Exchange 2003.  Before anyone chimes in, I already know that in Exchange, once a recipient policy matches for a user(s) or group(s), then processing ceases and no other policies will be run.  Here is my scenario:  In an attempt to force our users to cleanup their mailboxes, I have a recipient policy that after x number of days, mail is moved to the System Cleanup folder.  But this does not guarantee that the users are going to cleanup this folder.  I need 2 additional policies: 1) after x number of days, move mail from system cleanup to deleted items, and 2) after x number of days, delete items in deleted items.

Is there any way to script these 2 other policies in Exchange?  Is anyone willing to share there script or point me to "A simple and complete guide for scripting basic in Exhcange idiot's guide"?

My recommendation would be to move the items to the Deleted Items folder using the recipient policy and control the number of days in the deleted items through the system policy.

Sorry in the answer.  That is good, but this (per company policy) has to be 3 stepped.  Inbox to System Cleanup.  System Cleanup to Deleted Items.  Delete after x number of days.  I could still control number of days in deleted items with the system policy, but still only 1 out of 2 recipient policies would run.  You know anyway of scripting this?  Scripting is something I know nothing to little about.
