    The default email of an account has over 10k emails and needs to be cleaned out.

    Anyone know of a easy way to do this?

    Thanks,

    Are they in the queue or have they already been delivered? If they're already delivered you can just delete their mailbox file.

    Log in to WHM, go to the Server Contacts subtab, then go on Change System Mail Preferences, (you need to have root access), and you can enter :blackhole: so you don't receive unwanted emails, or do what i do, make the emails go to a special email address just for the emails, its handy because it doesn't annoy you and are handy for reference in some cases.
