Auto delete unused and Expired accounts.

Postby yon » 2012-02-02 23:02

I have offer some free mail service, So if some user not login in long time, I should auto can pause or delete it.

and if the domain mail hosting service has expired, then hmail should auto pause or delete domain and account.

I think that this is best achieved via a script run from a scheduled task
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

I agree with mattg.. Can easily be done via scripting & not require hmail to be modified.

If you are not BOFH, you don't want to talk with user whos email was deleted after he or she failed to log in for some time.

Careful admin doesn't delete user data. Account can be deleted, but emails should be saved in long term backups. hmailserver alone does not have such option.

Apples & oranges. ;)

There is an option to disable accounts/domains so you could script that if you desired but I agree with dzekas, extreme care should be taken with deleting domains & accounts so no way I'd want to automate such a thing.. Is why your ip ranges expiring (or greylisted IP's etc expiring) is NOT the same thing as auto deleting domains & accounts!
