Thanks.  I'll upgrade a little later to the newest version.

I had overlooked the '-a' option, and now I'm running with it.
However, earlier today I manually expired all articles older than 90
days, and therefore, I won't be able to know until a few days from
now as to whether this option is working for me.

But since I hadn't been using it before, I'm optimistic that its use
will now fix my problem.

I'll post back here in a few days to let you know whether things are
now working.

Thanks again for your help.
