A customer is beginning to run low of disk quota. They have many mailing lists.

Several such lists say in cPanel that they take 500 MB+. When the user logs into these
mailing lists each give the message that the archives are empty:

The Archives
No messages have been posted to this list yet, so the archives are currently empty.

Why then would the mailing list be taking up so much space, and how do I clear the space?
