6.7.4 Agent Expiry

nnagent doesn't handle expiry. Instead, there's a special gnus-agent-expire command that will expire all read articles that are older than gnus-agent-expire-days days. It can be run whenever you feel that you're running out of space. It's not particularly fast or efficient, and it's not a particularly good idea to interrupt it (with C-g or anything else) once you've started it.

if gnus-agent-expire-all is non-nil, this command will expire all articles--unread, read, ticked and dormant. If nil (which is the default), only read articles are eligible for expiry, and unread, ticked and dormant articles will be kept indefinitely.
