Newsgroups won't expire
||Date:||3 Sep 2018 23:15|
I've just noticed that I have some newsgroups going back to 2003. The
expiry is set to DEF/45. I expire old messages manually when convenient. I
can delete the old posts in the usual way (searching before a certain date
or selecting a batch and deleting). The spool files seem OK. Repairing the
groups makes no difference.
Email groups and folders seem to expire normally.
This probably arose when I recovered !NewsDir from my RiscPC backup drive
which no doubt had accumulated a lot of old messages. I wish I could put
my finger on why they're not expiring. The newsgroups are only subscribed
to by pseudo-user "news".

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
