so, it works in this way..... hmmm but what about expire.lastlowmark ?? 
does this file have something to do with case ?? or its role is nothing
more than "logging" purpose ? 

morover, articles, i think, cannot be removed from history file, because
they are still in spool dir. why expire could  remove enties from history
file without removing those articles from spool ? i thought that 
expireover  works corectly, because it runs after changes in "active"
file (its LO field). but, what program, and why, makes those changes, a had
no idea.
ok, thanks for explanation. 

could anyone tell me how to check if the "article" is present 
in history file ?
