    I was wondering if there is a way to delete spam that has been placed in the spam box by spamassassin? With the level of spam that most of my clients receive there is no way I won't have constant quota problems, as I know no-one will regularly remove their own spam. So, I would like to setup the spam box so that it automatically deletes mail after X days. Has anyone done that? Is there a way users can configure that through cpanel?

    Thanks,
    Chad

    Hunt around these forums a bit...

    I'm pretty sure I read a thread that advised setting up a fwd so that mail to the spambox account ends up being fwded to NULL or :blackhole:

    Hmm, that's not exactly what I'm looking for. That would delete mail immediately if it is flagged as spam. What I want is for mail to be placed into the spam box and then be auto-deleted if it is more then 5 days old. This gives users a chance to check it if they want to, but won't have it piling up.

    Archivemail may be setup to delete mail in any folder for any user based on days old.

    Its easy to setup w/ Python and easy to use w/ crontab.
