    hi ...

    i have my email all setup to move any emails tagged with *** SPAM *** to a Spam folder .. this works great.

    now, the issue is my customers don't delete the damn emails ... *sigh*

    so, i need to setup a script that will delete any email that is 1 week old, or older .. any suggestions?

    thanks in advance ...

    Doing some more searching here and came up with the following:

    find /var/qmail/mailnames/*/*/Maildir/.Spam/cur -type f -ctime +7 | xargs rm

    anyone see any issues with running this via a cron on a CentOS 4.2/Plesk 8.0.1 system?

    Thanks ...
