• Orphaned files

    By Luca Zucchelli 3 years ago

    I'd like to see a data collection also for orphaned mail files.
    It happens quite often (actually, that's true of 99% of my customers) that when a user is removed from the directory the mailfile is left on the server (because they want to check old mail or simply because admins forget to delete), so it would be quite useful to have some information about files which are on the system and and are not linked to any user

      Hi Luca,

      This feature is available in the current version but it
      is undocumented as I'm not 100% happy with the mail file owner
      resolution. The current implementation will only perform a lookup for
      the mail file owner on the Dominio directory and not directory assisance
      so may flag valid mail files as orphans in some environments.

      You can run this check using the swtiches:

      -o

      Scans the server for orphan mail files. Does not run by default. Safe to use with other options.

      e.g.

      load mdigest -s -o

      load mdigest -o

      -O

      Scans the server for orphan mail files and performs a scan of the documents too. Does not run by default. Safe to use with other options.

      e.g.

      load mdigest -s -O

      load mdigest -O

      Please note: You should only run on a single server in a cluster at a time. Clean up the orphans and then run on the next member server.

      I tell you this now as the next version is still a few months away.

        Thanks! I run that option on a copule of customers' servers and worked perfectly!
        I can't wait to see next release… :)
