Hi Mark – prior to running this prune script, do I need to stop postfix first?

See the script at <https://www.msapiro.net/scripts/prune_arch> (mirrored

at <https://fog.ccsf.edu/~msapiro/scripts/prune_arch>).

You could run this periodically via cron to do what you want. The down

side of this is each time you run it, the messages in the archive will

be renumbered and prior saved URLs to archived messages will no longer work.
