Hi All,

I found that there are a lot of SA temporary files under Windows- Temp folder with the name such as .spamassassin-3836lxD7Fatmp, .spamassassin-4600XKpxQStmp, etc.
Some files have old modified date which seems didn't being removed. :?

Can I clear them manually? or is there any kind of .bat code that can be scheduled to run by Task Scheduler?

ok, Thanks for clarfying. I found these old temp files when I ran full scan using antivirus software and it detected that there were some of these files infected. Cool, I will delete them and only keep the today's temp file. :lol:
Thanks again.

That might be why they were still there

The AV may have scanning the file a SpamAssassin was dealing with it, and it got 'locked' by the AV
