Hello, All -

Is it possible to clear all outgoing mail in a single action? I recently discovered that a client had a backlog of mail on his system (3,000+) but the list is so big that any attempts to remove the messages (via a bulk action) don't work.

I have tried to find an outgoing mail table in the mySQL table but no luck.

I can delete each message individually, using the delete link, but I don't want to do this 3,000 times!

For the outgoing mail log, you can show 1000 records per page, select all, then in the Advanced Commands dropdown at the bottom choose Erase selected.

Does this work for you?

Hi, Dave -

Sorry, that's my point. It doesn't work. I go through exactly the process you describe and hit "Go". The page refreshes but all the emails are still there!

It's perhaps worth noting that this is CMSB v2.65. I haven't updated yet for fear of breaking something. Even so...

I've just had another play and discovered that I can delete batches of up to 250 emails at once. Clearly 1000 is just to big for my server to cope!
