    Default Auto delete emails

    Is it possible to automatically delete emails from an account? I have an account setup for catching spam and want to have it purged every couple days.

    Thanks

    If that account is just a spam trap then set-up a filter to delete the email as it arrives.

    Is your server running 24/7? If it is there should be a cron job that runs to clean out the junk & trash folders. Which version/release of zimbra is this?
    Regards

    Yes, it is. Give use some details of your installed zimbra release/version and whether the cron jobs are install and whether your system is running 24/7.

    It is supposed to purge messages, but the chron job on my zimbra (ver 403 on Ubuntu) is failing. There is a bug report on it, 10829
    However, counting mine, there is exactly 1 vote for it.

    According to brian's bugzilla note it is happening on FC5, and is reported on SuSE10 also.

    It is probably happening to quite a few people, but since the cron job is being redirected to /dev/null ( /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmpurgemessages > /dev/null 2>&1 ) they probably don't notice any errors.


    I suggest you try running /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmpurgemessages manually (as the Zimbra user, su - zimbra first) and see if there is any output. If you get a segmentation fault, then the bug is probably affecting you too.

    Unhappy FC5 and 4.5 RC1 have the same problem !

    Spam is never deleted indeed !

    When i execute this command i get :

    [zimbra@webmail root]$ /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmpurgemessages
    Segmentation fault

    I have voted for this bug ! Hoping some other people do the same !
    Spam is really annoying these days as there are most of the time more spam messages than good email messages !
