Probably moving old messages from IMAP folders or to local folders will make hMailServer purge the old directory and it will end empty and then you'll be able to safely delete the old directory.

Whitelist is automatically maintained by ASSP.

Every message sent to outbound adresses tells ASSP wich is the email adresses you talk to, and so it adds them to whitelist automatically.

In a few days/weeks whitelist contains almost all adresses you talk to.
