    Is it possible to have a users inbox emptied once a message has been read.
    When retreiving mail via outlook etc the mail is removed from the server once received but if you use only webmail then the mail is just left on the server until you manually delete each message via webmail, what i need is a faster way to empty the inbox.

    Also tried eurdora webmail which will check pop3 accounts and delete the message from the server, the messages are retreived by eudora ok but a copy is still left on the server (the delete message from server is checked in eudora webmail)

    The only solution so far is to replace the inbox file every few days with a blank one this empties the inbox quickly but is not an ideal solution for users.

    some users receive 100`s of mail/day so deleting them page by page in webmail is tedious.

    This is becoming more of a problem as more users seem to only use webmail instead of outlook.

    What i need is an option in cpanel to empty a users inbox :)
