    Question Unable to make free space using " zmmailbox -z -m user@domain.com emptyFolder /inbox"

    Hi,
    My mail server hard disk is full 95%... so i try
    su - zimbra
    zmmailbox -z -m user1@domain.com emptyFolder /inbox
    (user1 is having mails size of at-least 5% of my harddisk)
    but even after this command still my system showing same 95% disk is full..
    so how can i delete mails from particular users permanently?

    The command you've used does completely remove the mail from the user account. What you should do is get the /opt/zimbra directory structure onto a new HD subsystem.

    I have no idea how to answer that as I have no access to your server and you've given no details of your configuration nor what's using the space on your HD nor the location of your Zimbra mail store. All I can tell you at this stage is that the email will be gone, perhaps there wasn't much email in the Inbox? You need to check what's causing the problem with your HD space, deleting a users email is not the answer.

    As I mentioned back in January, you're still not giving any information about your HD space usage. Posting the fact you've run that command doesn't actually tell us anything about your problem, you need to provide some evidence that what you're say is actually happening.
