Same problem for me. The expire plugin is in fact active, as I get an
error when intentionally malforming the expire= configuration line.

After observing my install for a bit, though, I have come to the
understanding that the expire plugin never really does anything. The proxy
db is only created when the expire-tool is run at night, and never touched
during the day.

I wonder what can be done to debug this? Using the find -delete way of
removing old mail seems a bit crude, especially with regards to the index.
