Depends on whose news server/spool. The ones I use expire after 48
Note that modern email packages (actually, it's been doing it for
many, many years) can present email in the same manner/scope as news.
The package is Emacs/Gnus, and while it's a PITA to set up, it does
everything else for you.
(including such useless features as presenting AltaVista queries as a
newsgroup, etc, etc...).
