   I would like to add my voice to the request for an option to maintain 
a `fixed' modification date on files. I am using MHonArc as part of a 
private news system, and it is nice to do expiry based on the modification
date. I have a rather clumsy bodge involving shadow copies of the files
which I use to `retouch' the real files, but using the `received date'
would be a much nicer idea.
P.S. Sorry to Achim, who has seen this mail twice!
