Clean_Mail provides scripts to help maintain mail spool files on a large system.
Clean_mail is a series of shell and Perl scripts that help a system administrator maintain mail spool files on a large system.
They offer deleting of old mails, backup, deleting of spam, automatic mails to users, etc.
What does Clean_Mail do ?
If you works with a version earlier than 2.59, you must not run several session of Clean_Mail at the same time. The different parts of the programm communicate with files and it would have impredictable results.
There is now a lock file (clean_mail.lock in /tmp) that avoid risks of data loss.
This software is particularly useful when a lot of users does not erase their mails from the server.
The program can manage backups, optional automatic mails to users, and anti-spam mode.
