Right now when you setup a forwarder in CPanel, it keeps a local copy of the message that comes in and then forwards it, but the local copy remains. At least that's what it used to do.

Does anyone know of an easy solution to track down all of those forwarders inboxes and erase all the email inside them but leave the inbox itself in tact? I have a fair amount of clients that have no clue how to use their email services and they love setting up forwarders to point their email to their ISP email account.

It's clogging up needed space on the server.

Doesn't do this on my installation. It should only keep a local copy if you creat a pop email account with the same name as the forwarder. If you don't want the email to remain on the server, don't create an email account for that address, just create a forwarder.

That makes sense! I'll do a test on that.

Thanks for your input! :)
