    Hi All,

    I just used add/remove accounts to remove a POP account containing 50Mb of unwanted junk emails.

    But no disk space was freed up.

    Reason:

    /home/accname/mail/username WAS deleted

    /home/accname/mail/accname/username was NOT deleted.

    Is this just me, or should Cpanel be taking care of the deletion of all files asoociated with a POP account when it is deleted?

    A feature request perhaps?

    Thanks for your comments.

    RE: remove POP account doesn

    Dear spaceman,

    Cpanel will have a backup of the mails associated with a POP account, so the disk space will not be freed up when the pop account is deleted. You have to manually delete those mails or you can run a script to automate this process.

    Regards,

    How much better it would be if, when it came to deleting a POP account, there was a check box option that said

    "Delete all files, including backups, associated with this POP account?"

    Usability - gotta love it. :)

    same probs with my boxes also. The files don't get deleted. If a user selects to delete a pop account, the files should be deleted, and not kept.

    Nick, please help fix this asap.
