    Post Automatically delete oldest mail when quota is full?

    I administrate a Zimbra server for a company with a few hundred accounts. Their quota is set to 50MB and a handful of accounts are coming close to meeting it. Is there a way to have Zimbra automatically delete e-mails, starting with the oldest, to dynamically make room for new e-mails? I know you can have e-mails auto-delete after a certain amount of days, but they specifically asked about such a feature so I figured I'd ask.

    Thanks,
    marcb

    I don't think you'll ever see a feature like that, since a mail bomb or a single attachment can cause a mailbox to fill up and make all of the exiting mail get deleted and nobody would ever know it was even in the mailbox.

    I think you may have to script that one on your own if you wanted it.

    That's exactly what I said. I didn't think you could, but there's no harm in asking. Thanks for the reply.
