Hi,

does support iRedMail the automatic deletion of mails in users trash older than x-days? And if yes, how can I activate it?

Dovecot has command for this:

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

Re: Auto delete emails in users trash?

Thats great! Created a little script to do it per cron:

sudo nano /usr/local/bin/dovecot_expunge.sh
#!/bin/bash
#
DOVEADM="/usr/bin/doveadm";

$DOVEADM expunge -A mailbox Trash savedbefore 3d
$DOVEADM expunge -A mailbox Junk  savedbefore 30d

Then I made the script executable:

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/dovecot_expunge.sh

and finally added it to the crontab:

sudo crontab -e
#dovecot delete spam & trash
0 4 * * * /usr/local/bin/dovecot_expunge.sh

It should delete emails in Trash older than 3 days and in Junk older than 30 days.
