SquirelMail to perform maintenance operations similar
to PINE and IMP: delete/move old messages.

    Can you be a bit more specific? What kind of maintenance?

    IIRC:
    Once a month, PINE and IMP ask the user to move old sent and
    trash mail to new folders like this

    Sent200504
    Trash200504

    One benefit of this is that it saves gobs of disk space in
    differential backups with large sent/trash folders.

    I would see this as a feature for a plugin.

    The sent subfolders plugin will automatically store sent mail in folders for the current month, etc. Enable the plugin (comes with SM) and see Options->Folder Preferences->Sent Subfolders Options
