This tool checks the date of all the messages downloaded from specified BBS and deletes the messages older than the specified lifetime. The lifetime of messages can be specified for each BBS in the configuration file /etc/ax25/bulletins.BBS_CALL
Each line of this file contains the name of the bulletin and the lifetime in days. When the bulletin name is DEFAULT the lifetime value is used for all the bulletins which are not contained in the list. Example of configuration file:
# Bulletin lifetimes for BBS in days
In this case the messages for MEET are stored 10 days, messages for LINUX are stored 90 days and all other messages are stored for 30 days.
