My news.daily file says this...

Expire messages:

I couldn't see a /var/news/log/expire.lowmark file but I guess this is
automatically removed?  I have an entry in expire.lastlowmark file

uk.media.dvd 74593

My active file currently says this:

uk.media.dvd 0000075100 0000074593 y

Should I re-run lowmark manually?

Edwin
