If you're using strictly CNFS, you normally don't want to specify a
per-newsgroup expiration policy at all.  The articles will automatically
expire when the cycbuffs roll over; the only thing that an expiration
policy can do is delete them faster than they would be removed otherwise.

With current INN versions, your nightly report should contain information
on how fast your cycbuffs are rolling over.  If they're rolling over too
fast, you may need to move around what articles go where so that articles
you want to retain for longer are in less-used cycbuffs.
