    I have one problem that my /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine folder are building up very fast, just wanted to know is there any setting errors in my configuration. My Mailscanner quarantine is set as follow:


    1. WHM > MailScanner > Front-End Settings > Enable email storing in quarantine > no

    2. WHM > MailScanner > MailScanner Configuration > Non Spam Actions = deliver

    3. WHM > MailScanner > MailScanner Configuration > Quarantine Whole Messages As Queue Files = no

    Go on, have a guess
    By default it will keep 7 days worth. If you want less, edit /etc/cron.daily/clean.quarantine.cron

    Thank you very much.

    One more problem is /var/log/audit.d is building up with files save.xx and never clear until I manually delete off. I need to delete it every week otherwise my /var folder will be 90% full. How to configure it to clean automatically.

    Do you mean that if we run the above, it can cause server instability?

    No, laus can cause instability - that's why you should remove it.
