And while this looks like it will work, with the increasing amount of
spam we face, I was hoping for a method that could be used 'on the fly'
and would cover a longer time period.

messages down and simply (mv) remove them from the queue... however
Neither `expirer ` or my idea work as well as I would like because, in
part, I'm seeing spam being relayed off of several sites (which makes it
difficult to block) but then end up with a common 'channel/host', stuck
