Please empty the recycle bin.

Thanks Till.

But postfix don't create any folders beside inbox. And many of the users have mailclient's and don't use webmail. I can't force them to use webmail to delete mails.

I was not atlking about webmail, I thought you want to delete the complete account as ISPConfig has a recycle bin.

The purpose of imap is, to keep the emails on the server. If the emails shall be deleted, you must use pop3 as mail protocol and not imap.

Thanks Till.

I'm not rely understand your comments about imap, if use a clean mailserver without Ispconfig it's create a bunch of folders and users can even delete mails
even if they use imap?

No harm just not understand.

There is nothing special regarding IMAP with ISPConfig as ISPConfig does not configure the imap server at all. The Imap server is courier in your case I guess and courier supports adding and deleting of folders if your imap client supports it.

I'am using pop3 and imap with ISPConfig every day on several servers.

If your imap server dont work, its most likely a configuration problem and not a ISPConfig problem.

Have a look at your mail logfile for errors.

For some Imap clients you have to configure them to "expunge" the mails, because by default they are just marked for deletion.
