Bayes database growing too much...

How do I control the bayes database from growing out of control right

Stop MS. Delete all files except bayes_journal, bayes_seen and
bayes_toks. Now run "sa-learn --force-expire".


MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
