Did you ever set discard failed messages to never ??  I have found if you
do that with CommuniGator, SIMS decides to retain every message in its Q,
irrespective of status.  Changing it back to month or week or whatever,
does not change this behaviour - you have to use the web interface to
change it to something else and then it does as expected.


I find this "feature" extremely useful;  please, do NOT "fix" it (in the
event you decide it is a bug).

Thank you for an excellent FREE product.  Thank you for all the support.
