Hi there,

Still evaluating the free version of iRedMail before I consider upgrading.

I realise that accounts are not deleted from the file system by design, although I can't imagine how or why this is a good idea. On an active server -- which mine will be, as it's replacing an existing non-iRedMail server -- this will just lead to the accumulation of cruft and wasted disk space.

That said, I saw a reference in "Remove mailboxes when deleting user" to the "deleted_mailboxes" table, with a suggestion that a cron job could be run to remove old mailboxes from the file system. However, when I delete an account / mail box, nothing is added to this table.

Two questions:

1) Why is nothing added to the "deleted_mailboxes" table, and how can I run a cron job if there's nothing in there?
2) Does the current Pro version support deleting accounts from the file system on demand, or must it be done manually or via a cron job? If the latter, is it working?

Thanks.

iRedMail ships iRedAdmin open source edition, but it doesn't log deleted mailbox in SQL table. iRedAdmin-Pro does.

iRedAdmin-Pro logs maildir path of deleted mailbox, not delete mailboxes on file system immediately. So you have to remove the mailbox manually or via a cron job.
