Re: auto delete email in mailbox

We are using the stock Sendmail and all mail is stored in the /var/spool/mail directory under individual mailboxes as the name of the login on the server. Basically we made no change to it from the original installation of RHEL AS.

That depends on what MTA your using and how it stores its mail.  Are you
using maildir or mbox mailboxes?
