Mailboxes are not deleting:

[root@mail iredapd]# python /var/www/iredadmin/tools/delete_mailboxes.py --delete-without-timestamp

* Delete old mailboxes (8 in total).
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/www/iredadmin/tools/delete_mailboxes.py", line 221, in <module>
    _dir = _ldif['homeDirectory'][0].lower().replace('//', '/')
KeyError: 'homeDirectory'

I do not use timestamps in mailbox names
The directory exists.

This is a sample database entry in Table deleted_mailboxes in database iredadmin (there are 8 entries) :
40     2019-02-13 09:51:55     hmurray@domain.net     domain.net     /var/vmail/vmail1/domain.net/h/m/u/hmurray/     mailadmin@cyg.net     2019-02-20

Thoughts?

You can fix the script with patch below:

         for (_dn, _ldif) in _qr:

     elif settings.backend in ['mysql', 'pgsql']:
         # WARNING: always append '/' in returned maildir path.
         _qr = conn_vmail('mailbox',

But, why does some mail user account not have LDAP attribute 'homeDirectory'? i'm afraid that there may be some data integrity issue with your LDAP data.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Re: mailbox not deleting

Thanks, that did the trick.

I was just looking at the LDAP homeDirectory entries of the mailboxes that were set for deletion, which all exist. I took a closer look, and I have a catchall for domain mail forwarding to a special account I created, so now the first entry in the LDAP users list has an entry in the "mail" field of just "@domain.com" and no homeDirectory entry.

Re: mailbox not deleting

That makes sense, please use the patch to fix it.
