OK, great to know!

The lowmark keyword is indeed useless without expireover.

Second point:  cron should not e-mail you.
I believe the warning should be fed to innmail, which means changing:
     echo "warning:  lowmark requires expireover"
     echo "warning:  lowmark requires expireover" | eval ${MAIL}
in news.daily.

Yes it can.
I will update the documentation to mention the fact.
Thanks again for your precious remarks!
