    I was searching this forum for something similar, but didn't find any scripts/commands to do such a task. I think it would be nice to see a script which cleans catch-all (default) email box on all user accounts. Default boxes contain nothing but spam, so cleaning them would free up lots of space, I think.

    I'm not a Linux guy, so I don't know what command should I write to delete these boxes. May be someone has any ideas or similar scripts?

    EDIT: Just discovered cmm script, it does exactly what I needed :)

    Some of my users route everything to their catchall box instead of setting up separate email accounts. Which is irritating, because then they complain to ME about the spam they have to wade through to read their emails. :rolleyes:
