    Default Really delete in one stroke?

    Is it possible to really delete emails in one stroke, instead of deleting and then deleting from trash.

    One of my accounts has been getting a pile of spam backwash error messages over the last day or so, and rather than leaving them in the trash folder until the usual purge time-out (30 days IIRC) I'm double-deleting to get rid completely. Can this be done in one step?

    No problem if not, I'm just being lazy really and hopefully the problem will go away shortly (this has happened once before, a couple of years ago, and only lasted a couple of days before which-ever git using my address moved on to using another).

    You can do this on the command line as the Zimbra user:

    Code:
    zmmailbox -z -m mailbox@domain.com emptyFolder Inbox
    Be careful, it will delete all messages in the folder

    An alternative method would be to create a search in the web client, show 100 messages per page, and then Ctrl+A, Del. Incidentally, you can right-click on the Trash folder and choose 'Empty'.

    I'd not trust myself with such a potentially destructive process - I *would* at some point accidentally delete something vitally important!

    Thanks for the reply though.
