    Default Manually purging a mailbox...

    Hi all,

    We have an account that has close to 950,000 messages in it and is 10+ gb and growing. It was originally for automated processes to sent their logs/output to, but it was not checked for many months and is now super full of messages.

    I tried:

    zmmailbox -z -m emptyFolder Inbox

    and I get:

    ERROR: zclient.IO_ERROR (invoke Read timed out) (cause: Read timed out)

    Also, I can't get to the mailbox from the CLI or web GUI now.

    Any ideas?

    Fixed! By reindexing mailbox through zmprov CLI

    prov> rim start
