Here is a pretty basic question for you. I am running 2.3.1 on Red Hat
Where can I look to see how long messages are kept for? Is there a
default retention period (like 2 weeks) or something like that? I
looked at the cron jobs that came by default and they seem to be working
fine, including expires, however I don't know how long the messages are
This is my /etc/cron.daily for inn:
/sbin/chkconfig innd && su - news -c "/usr/bin/news.daily delayrm"
Is there a parameter that I can tag on the end thats sets the length of
time it will keep them? Something like:
/sbin/chkconfig innd && su - news -c "/usr/bin/news.daily delayrm 30d"
Is this what my /etc/news/expire.ctl file is for? It shows this entry:
## Keep for 1-10 days, allow Expires headers to work. This entry uses
## the syntax appropriate when groupbaseexpiry is true in inn.conf.
Is this saying that messages could be kept for a possible 1 day at
times?? I would prefer to keep at least a 30 day window of messages.
