Is it OK to delete spam folders
Question asked by alan fendrich - October 1, 2014 at 12:27 AM
Smartermail 11.7 on Win2008 server
I've got a lot of spam folders growing in C:\SmarterMail\Spool\spam. They've grown to 500 meg at this point and don't see the point to save them.
Can I simply delete the daily spam folders?

I don't think Smartermail creates that folder

If you are the MX server administrator, you may want to advise your customers/hosted accounts to periodically check their spam folders via the web interface to make certain no legitimate e-mail is in them
If they are running IMAP or ActiveSync, they should be able to sync those folders on their devices.
