    Default Deleting from the Trash Folder

    Hello all,

    I am currently evaluating zcs-5.0.10 FOSS on a Cent 5 box as a solution to replace our aging mail server. During my testing I have noticed that if you delete a message from the Trash folder it also gets removed from the message store which, I'm certain, is exactly what's supposed to happen. However, I would rather have the option to keep users from potentially harming themselves. Is there an option in the configuration that will disable deleting from the Trash folder? I really don't want to chattr +i the message store every minute.

    Any assistance or suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums,

    There is Bug 25691 - Family mailbox: Disable empty trash and delete from trash
    Certainly file another RFE for disable the delete button in trash if you wish.

    You may be interested in Bug 30582 - RFE: Recover Deleted Items ability for users (tombstone area or abiltiy to recover items not yet purged)

    You could change the lifetime/purge thread but it won't help those who've emptied trash manually :
    su - zimbra
    zmprov mc COSname zimbraMailTrashLifetime 0
    zmprov ms `zmhostname` zimbraMailPurgeSleepInterval 0
    This value specifies the amount of time that the purge thread sleeps between subsequent purges. If the interval is set to 0, purging is turned off.
