you'll need the page open to run the php script or have some other page open it. You could get a javascript page to load the page after 5 minutes and run the query on the load of the page.

add a field to the db as "pending delete" with a time of deletion, then add a function on each page load of the messaging service with deletes messages where time() > pending_delete && message_read = 1 or something similar. In any case it will not matter when the message is deleted because it will happen before the next page view in any case.
