On the user list page of iRedAdmin-Pro, while removing user account, iRedAdmin-Pro gives you a drop-down list to keep the mailbox for given days, did you see the drop-down list? You can select the proper option for you (e.g. keep mailbox for 1 day, 1 month, etc), then remove the account.

There's a daily cron job for iRedAdmin-Pro to remove mailbox of removed account from disk.

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

Choose "Delete" in the drop-down list, then there's a new drop-down appear right beside it.

Dear Bin,
If I just delete the mail folder in os, how about ldap db info? How can I remove it or just ignore it? If there are too many delete record in ldap db, is it affect the performance?

Pls confirm!!
Thanks!!

I suppose you use iRedAdmin-Pro to delete user, right? If yes, then the data in LDAP is removed while you deleting user account.

Dear Bin,

That mean I just delete the user mail folder in os after delete the user in iredmail. Is it right?

Thanks!!
