    We have some accounts on one box (latest stable) that have rather large Trash boxes, and the "Dovecot Auto Expunge Trash" function doesn't seem to be dealing with these. They're really old emails, and having set this to 90 days to start, it didn't do anything. Set it to 30, and ran "/scripts/dovecot_maintenance" manually via root. That found one or two accounts, but within some other account on the server, not the ones we're seeing the trouble with. Server logs don't show any errors.

    Is there something else I should be looking for there? Assuming it's based on the timestamp of the actual email and not how many days since enabling this, I'm confused as to why it's failing. Thoughts on where to look would be appreciated.
