Julian, I don't know how you do it. But I assume that if the timeout is
reached you call off SA. That stops the expiry. Next time it all starts
over. Since you use SA as a library I suppose you can't simply keep it
"running" by itself (which would be dangerous, anyway). So, I suppose what
you need is add a new function which gets called after MS "feels" SA is
failing to expire and trigger an expiry run of its own which doesn't get
called off. And I think you just hit the same problem here: timeouts. You
have to put a timeout in, so that you don't have it running endlessly
(which can happen!). There is no reason why people which have a high mail
flux could not just sync/expire once or a few times a day via cron. That's
much cleaner than have it happen "suddenly".
