    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.
