[quote user="thiagotgc"]It really is not the latest version (sorry)


7.1.4 is latest as of today
Does the size increase go with how much mail is being stored on your mailboxes?
Does not matter if your clients are IMAP, web client, etc. The mail store will increase size with more mail incoming and outgoing. Do your mailboxes have quotas? Large attachments?
Size of /opt/zimbra/log folder?

In fact everything you could remove the log, and things like that I removed.
However SOTORE the folder grows too!
And the worst is that it has e-mail that is sent the same almost every day for

users themselves, without anyone to send anything, eg:
It has a user here, which has the same e-mail every day, and this

e-mail has been sent and read months ago.
Does anyone know and could help me?

How much users do you have?

How big is your Zimbra partition?
There are a few things you can do.

Set a quota.

Empty all trashes and check the 'Email Retention Policy' and 'Trashed message lifetime' settings.

Ask your users to delete old mails they no longer need.

I have about 60 users

The partition is where the zimbra is 80GB in 2009 and 2010 used about 20gb,

in 2011 to date risen to 60gb. I think there's anything wrong, why not

Raised users, and not the flow of shipping and receiving.
At 1 month, there was a company meeting where everyone should Delete Message

old and unnecessary.
However did not diminish the folder store, it continues to 60GB
Where this option demarco global trash?

First off, from my experience telling users they need to delete doesn't do much. Only quotas really make people delete. Do you have quotas in place?
That being said, you will want to look at the Zimbra Admin GUI and see what your users are really using. Also there, check your Class of Service settings and make sure:

- In the "Advanced" class of service settings, that you have a "Trashed message lifetime:" set (30 days is pretty standard for this, not sure if its the default though).

- In "Features" is "Dumpster folder" enabled? I personally make sure that is off for our CoS (since I think it is unneeded with the regular Trash folder in place).
What you have though does not sound like a lot of storage used. Its only about 1GB per user which isn't a ton these days.
