Deleting "Out of Office" Receipts

Reported by: ariana@… Owned by: Jamie McClelland
Priority: High Component: Tech

Sensitive: no



I am writing because a colleague who was out on maternity leave has returned to find over 15,000 emails in her inbox, thousands of which are Out of Office receipts. We were wondering if all such emails can be deleted from her inbox from your end so they are not taking up space on our server.

Thank you, Ariana

Hi Ariana - I assume you are talking about the cwilner user. I'm doing a search now to find messages with a subject line with the words "Out of office". If you like, I can manually delete these messages - but the risk might be deleting a message you want. I'm not sure what subject line could have those words that you want to keep though. Let us know what you'd like us to do.


p.s. To our support team... I'm running:

 egrep -ri "^Subject: .*Out of Office" /home/members/nedap/sites/ | wc -l

The count turned up 5,874 messages with that subject line.
