I am not sure, but how do the two bugs affect "my" problem? Bug 3092 is
about changing a commandline parameter (-F to -M). And I thought,
cyr_expire is doing to job (not ipurge).

OK. Thank you, then I will use this hack...
Searching the list I found:
"> mboxcfg user.someuser.spam expire 7
This is what I use for my user's SPAM folders and for my newsgroup
folders, but you need to keep in mind that the /expire annotation is
inherited by children unless told otherwise."
Is your hack the way to do this or do I miss something?
