There is a setting under Advanced options on the iPhone where you can
"Delete messages after XX days", but the lowest you can set it to
is "1 day".  I have no idea why there isn't an "Immediately" option.

I'm also unsure if that is actually the expunge action, or if the phone
is doing some sort of manual move to the Trash folder instead after
that period of time.
