Hello,

A client of mine has been using the downloadMail plugin for 3+ years and I noticed there are 56,000+ records in cmsb__incoming_mail.

Can I safely empty this table? I am worried if I do then historic emails might be sent again when cron next runs the plugin!

Thanks,

Greg

Hi Daniel,

That's good to know, thank you.

Can you explain what that table is used for by the plugin please?

I guess as long as the mailbox inbox is empty then no duplicate emails will be downloaded and sent again. Does that seem right?

Thanks again,

Greg

Hi Greg,

That table is simply where the downloaded mail is saved to in CMSB. It sounds like you might have some additional functionality that then re-sends downloaded emails? This plugin specifically handles just the downloading portion.

I guess as long as the mailbox inbox is empty then no duplicate emails will be downloaded and sent again. Does that seem right?

Yep, that's correct. The plugin deletes (or archives) messages after downloading them, essentially to prevent that exact thing.

Hi Daniel,

OK, so as long as my code does not retrieve messages from this table then I should be able to safely empty it.

I am hoping we copy the messages from cmsb__incoming_mail and the store them in a different table for manipulating... I will investigate!

Thanks for the help.

Regards,

Greg
