Re: expireage problem w/Mhonarc 2.1

I have found the problem in:

  ## Remove old message if hit maximum size or expiration
   while ($index = shift(@array)) {
    last  unless
            ($MAXSIZE && ($NumOfMsgs > $MAXSIZE)) ||

This code checks the database for expired msgs starting at the 1st item in th
database. If that 1st item is not expired, then checking for expired msgs

You are right.  When you mentioned the problem I took a quick look at
this area of the code and knew something was amiss.  If I am not
mistaken, there is another problem with the related code area.  Do not
know why I did not catch it before; must have been smoking something.

BTW, my first response/question to the problem was trying to leave out
another possibility.

The problem arises when a user is using the -subsort option. With the db sort
by subject and not by date, the oldest msg is not at the top of the db. Thus,
when the db is checked for expired msgs, mhonarc sees the 1st one is not 
expired and checking for expired msgs is incorrectly halted.


If you confirm this as true, is this something you would address in your 
next release?

Sure.  I should note that I am currently very busy on a project
so it maybe a little while.  Also, I will be out-of-state most
next week, and possible the week after that.
