    I've just moved all my accounts to a new VPS providor. I was going down my list of Accounts doing a check that everything was working. One account has a primary email that has not been checked in months and has 62000 emails in the Inbox. All of the webmail clients are choking on this.

    Is there a Cpanel/WHM option to just delete these?

    Thanks

    Yu can delete it. It will be recreated when it is needed - or if you are real paraniod you can run /scripts/mailperm and it will ctrae it and check all the permissions then.
