2.1.11 does not support any of them except for the default
expire. 2.2 and higher was were the rest started support.
I mentioned right before the list that not all of those
were supported or implemented in 2.1.

I didn't realize it wasn't resolved. I did mention that 2.1 most
likely did NOT support those two.

No, you have that confused with OverDue. Limit is cleared after
each payment is received.

2.2 or higher.

No. Its reset to zero after each payment.

Although the 2.1 admin supports it, the 2.1.11 client does not.

We have made 2.2 availble to those people who needed a feature of it.
Send me private E-mail and I will talk to you about it.
