    Default Zimbra delete all the mails of individual users

    Dear users,

    I am currently using zimbra 7.1.1 64bit Opensource edition in Ubuntu 10.04 server 64 bit. with around 490 users.

    I am the admin and I need to delete all the users e-mails and not their accounts, Is there any way to do this.

    If zimbra cannot do it you could export a list of username/password (not sure if this is possible) and then patch together some external script to delete the emails via some imap-tools. (I would go for a perl-imap-module)

    Another thing is that zmmailbox has a deletemessage and a deletefolder command. So this might be a much more practicable and efficient way to go for. Use zmprov to create a list of users and then with zmprov/zmmailbox create a list of folders per user and then apply the delete-commands.

    for a starter

    hope this helps,
    Release 7.1.3_GA_3346.UBUNTU10_64 UBUNTU10_64 FOSS edition
