    Default [SOLVED] Postfix Folders

    Hi All,
    Hope you're doing fine. I got the following issue. We have an install that already has become a bit too large for the server it is in. We already have everything migrated to a new server, but still there is no date defined to switch servers. Ok, the problem is the following, aside from big mailboxes from the users, we have folders in /opt/zimbra/postfix/spool with an enormous amount of messages that are slowing the server for example:

    [root@mail postfix]# cd spool/
    [root@mail spool]# ls
    active bounce corrupt defer deferred flush hold incoming maildrop pid private public saved trace
    [root@mail spool]# cd defer
    [root@mail defer]# ls
    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F
    [root@mail defer]# du -h
    72M ./9
    75M ./2
    20M ./F
    77M ./D
    77M ./C
    77M ./7
    76M ./1
    81M ./3
    81M ./8
    81M ./B
    80M ./0
    83M ./5
    82M ./A
    84M ./4
    80M ./E
    80M ./6
    1.2G .
    [root@mail defer]#

    My question is: Can I delete the subfolders inside the following to cleanup my install???:

    active
    bounce
    corrupt
    defer
    deferred
    flush
    hold
    incoming
    maildrop
    pid
    private
    public
    saved
    trace

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi..if you dont care about all the emails sitting in the SPOOL (defer, deffered, active..) then you can clean (DELETE) it using

    ** to clean ALL postfix spool folders ****
    /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -d ALL

    ** to clean jut the deferred postfix spool ****
    /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postsuper -d ALL deferred


    IMP: you dont want to delete the physical folder structure you listed..it will break postfix

    Default It helped

    Raj,
    Thanks for your reply. It helped at least to reduce my storage problem. Right now I need my users to cleanup their spam and erased mails. Again, thanks in advance for your help.
