    If you want to empty it, go to the file manager and delete the appropriate file:
    mail/domain.com/mailusername/file

    If you just delete mail files, they will be recreated next time they're used.

    Thanks for the help.

    I suppose with "file" you mean the "inbox" ?

    If the inbox is what you want to empty, yes. It will be recreated with the next email. Just make sure there are no emails in there you want to keep.
