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 Greg,

Yes, it should be safe to empty that table without re-downloading old emails. Though, I would still recommend making a backup first in case something unexpected happens.

Let me know any other questions!

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 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
