    I have the option checked to keep the .spamassasin folder cleared but I noticed these files with 'expire' added to them and wondered if they could be safely deleted.

    I'm seeing those expire files to get accumulated as well. Does these expire files get removed automatically by default ? I do not see any option (system level or user level) to manage them, other than creating a cron file to remove them manually for each user.

    afaik, they are supposed to look after themselves. I've only had them accumulate once and after tidying them up manually, haven't seen them since. Sorry I can't be more help.
