[Dovecot] remove old files

I use the dovecot 2.0.10 server and wonder how to clean up correctly the old 
mails (especially for spam folder).

I use maildir storage, and wonder if deleting files with an rm and file command 
combinaison would be good or would corrupt indexes files/whatever.

for exemple, the spam folder is in ~/.mail/.INBOX.spam/

Thus, can I "cd ~/.mail/.INBOX.spam/ && rm 'files older than 2 months' " or 
something else ?
