    Quarantined emails are kept in /opt/zimbra/amavisd/quarantine/ I believe there is a nightly cron job that is supposed to clean out those emails.

    ...I just checked my crontab file and their is NO job entry for zimbra....

    ...and the /opt/zimbra/amavisd/quarantine directory is NOT being cleared nightly...this stuff is just sitting there.....

    ...so..back to my original question....how does the zimbra system administrator manage quarantined emails.......through some part of the qui that I have NOT yet found....or manually.....?

    .....I really don't care if I have to do it manually....I just would like to know...

    TIA...

    su - zimbra
    crontab -l

    This should have a bunch of entries. Including one like:

    Code:
    # Clean up the quarantine dir
    #
    0 1 * * * find /opt/zimbra/amavisd/quarantine -type f -mtime +7 -exec rm -f {} \; > /dev/null 2>&1
    #
    If you want to clean it manually just remove the files from the /opt/zimbra/amavisd/quarantine directory.
