    Hi guys:

    That's my question. I have over 1200 emails, and I'd like to erase them all, but I would become crazy trying to erase them one by one, so, is there an easier way to just, wipe all emails out?

    Kind Regards!

    $ echo > inbox

    Hi Tomas,

    You can delete all the mails available under your email account by deleting the inbox file present under
    /home/Your_username/mail/Email_Accountname/inbox.

    Create a empty file named inbox after deleting the original file.

    Hope this will solve your problem.

    Regards

    Bright
    :)

    When I want to empty an inbox, I just delete it. It's automatically recreated next time email comes in.

    From shell, just type:
    rm /home/[username]/mail/inbox
    for the default account, or:
    rm /home/[username]/mail/[Email_Accountname]/inbox
    for a seperate POP account.

    Without shell, just use cpanel's file manager and delete the inbox file you want emptied.
