You want expire.ctl -- assuming groupbaseexpiry (in inn.conf) is true,
which I'm guessing it is for your server, you want something like


which will have most posts last for 30 days, but allow users to specify
(using the Expires: header when they post an article) a different length
of time.  If you want articles to last for 30 days even if the Expires:
header says something else, you want


(the middle number is the generally-used one, the first and third numbers
specify the region in which Expires: is honored).
