    Default Trashed/Spam Message Lifetime

    I have been testing Zimbra Open Source Edition for over a month now, and it does not appear that the Trashed and Spam Message Lifetime settings are working. I have the Trashed Message Lifetime set to 30 days (default) and have lowered the Spam Message Lifetime to 15 days. As far as I can tell no messages have been purged from either folder automatically.

    Is there something else that I need to run to purge these messages?

    There should be a cron job that calls zmpurgemessages you can also try running it manually.

    Thanks...Running it from the command line worked. Crontab for zimbra user shows it is setup to run each day at 3:00 AM and system cron log shows that it is running. I don't see any error messages. Anything else I should be looking for?

    Worked mean it ran without error? Or worked meaning it actually cleaned up your mailboxes?

    Worked meaning it ran without error AND it actually cleaned the mailboxes. Still doesn't look like the cron job is working though.

    I redirected the output of the "zmpurgemessages" command in the zimbra crontab to a file and I get the following error message:
    Received SOAP fault: authentication failed for zimbra (empty password)

    As previously stated, if I run the command manually, logged in as the zimbra user, it works fine.
