    Default Clean up file structure.

    I have been using the NE version for a couple of years and with all the upgrades in that time the Zimbra file structure has become a mess.

    That thread only covers some of the directories and was not followed up, it would be nice if Zimbra provided a script to inspect and clean up their product from old upgrades. Even if the only provided it to NE customers, after all we are paying them for the product and commercial software shouldn't leave such a mess to clean up.

    Haven't heard back from the other guy, so I guess he's had no trouble so far; ~ 70k posts in 13k threads can make for a lot of activity in one's mail followup tag/folder
    Ok, so run a ls -la as you've done above and anything that's not the most recent version or symlinked is generally OK to delete.
    When in doubt: simply make a backup first.
    For the other thing care to open an RFE?

    If you think it's that important then please file an RFE in bugzilla.

    Thanks! (We can file them too of course - but this way your for certain kept abreast of when it's completed, can answer any clarification needed, and better understand developer design decisions.)
