    Default Deleting Zimbra 7.x Mailboxes

    Dear Administrators;
    My server is quickly running out of space. I have migrated all inactive and old accounts to a backup server. I would like to free space on this server so that active users can utilize the space. I am able to view the email account sizes from command using zmmailbox command. When i delete the account using the admin console i seem not to get the recovered space. where does this space go? and how can i reclaim the space after deleting this email account? Your response will be appreciated.

    You'd be far better addressing the problem of storage space and adding more hardware to your current server rather than a sticking-plaster answer of moving accounts off the server.

    Thanks for your response. we are in the process of upgrading the hardware and this request is to provide guidance on how space can be freed on the current hardware. If you know i need your help.
