Email account space hogs

    Suggestion that is badly needed.

    I have email account "disk space hogs" that over exceed their account limits yet i don't know who they are.

    Can you make a way for administrators to easily see email accounts and the space they are taking on the server? Even if you just added the disk space count to the Email part of the Plesk tool.

    If there is an easy way to do, can you tell me how?

    du -ch --max-depth=1 /var/qmail/mailnames/*/ | more

    ... will show you the size of every mailbox.

    Domain specific

    Awesome! Is there a way to narrow it down to a particular domain.

    Say listing out all of the accounts and their size, so to speak?

    Ah got it!

    du -ch --max-depth=1 /var/qmail/mailnames/domain.net/ | less

    This is a great command that has just helped me out of a tight spot with limits.

    I would like to know if there is a easy way to delete all e-mail in a specific mailbox.

    I notice just disabling the mailbox does not delete the e-mail. I'm using Plesk 8.
