Perhaps, however vpopmail should have removed them in the first place, ok, sure, most of us will never delete a domain with that many users, but it is possible, think migration to a new server for one, think virtual ISP's changing carriers etc, in those cases 90K users could be very small userbase, I doubt it's a critical thing, but it is something the inter7 guys need to be made aware of I feel, if they can not reproduce the problem, then thats fair enough but I'm sure I'm not the only one on current Linux distro (slackware) with ext2 .. I will be changing to rieser on my next hardware upgrade, but I doubt its a FS issue, maybe vpopmail calls rm without xargs which usxually does work, but this time, it got real upset :(

Hmmmm. Shell scripting.

A good option, I have been using it for a while.

BTW, this ones for the coders... upon deleting my test domain with 90K odd accounts vdeldomain had problems.. it removed from the database, but did not remove much of the directories, got some, but left problematic filenames (those starting with ?, ie: ?new ?cur ) etc, thereby a rm -rf wouldnt work, i had to unmount the disk and run e2fsck and took 25 mins holding down "y" to correct the issues before I could rm -rf the vast majority of that 90K, so perhaps the removal of physical directories process needs to be revisited?

Otherwise, I agree if you have more than a few thousand users in a domain, dump cdb and use mysql, the performace is greatly noticed :)
