    Hello :)

    You can remove the emails directly via the command line using the "rm" utility. The storage path is:

    /home/$username/mail/$domain.com/cur/

    Or, for the default account:

    /home/$username/mail/cur

    Note that the "cur" directory is for the primary inbox. You are welcome to check the space usage in the other directories outside the paths listed above.

    Thank you.

    The message is accepted from the sender and discarded without sending a bounce message.

    No, the emails are discarded so they are not stored on the server.

    Thank you.
