I am using  qmailadmin 1.2.10 and vpopmail 5.4.15.

I have a user that has around 500 megs worth of messages in their cur
directory. I asked them to please remove messages from the server in
their pop client, but now they say that it just times out after a long
time when checking their email, and I can see that messages are still
not being removed from their cur directory.

Can I just cd into their cur directory and rm * the files myself from
the command line?

I searched the archives of this list but didn't have any luck finding
anything that addressed the question of recent vintage.

Best Wishes.


Short answer is yes
long answer is you might have to

find . -type f | xargs rm (in the cur directory)


rm 1188*
rm 1189*

to get them all removed.
