    Hello,

    how can I locate abandoned/no-usage email accounts?

    Today I found an account with 90% disk usage. It had 10 email accounts, but only 1 in use. All others without use since 2011!!

    Any way to get datetime from latest POP3/IMAP/Webmail auth of an user?

    Note: /var/log/maillog won't help, only current week. I need to delete accounts +60 days no usage.

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    Email logins are only logged to /var/log/maillog. You can adjust your logrotate configuration so that it's not rotated as often, offering you longer time frames to review login history:

    logrotate

    Thank you.
