Deleting attachments from deleted accounts
What tool is used to delete attachments from /var/lib once an account has been removed in LDAP?
I just removed 5 accounts. I then ran the db-remove-unreferenced-attachments.pl script, but the attachments for those users still exist.
What else needs to be done?
Interestingly enough, I ran the command again and it found 20-30 unreferenced attachments. Then I ran it again, and it found some more. Same thing a third time. So … what gives? How do I just run this once and get ALL the unreferenced attachments deleted at one time, and is there any other way to close out an e-mail account fully?

I also ran db-remove-orphaned-attachments command. It gave this output:
Finding all orphaned attachments…
Processing 4240 orphaned attachments
Flush database changes to disk…
However, a GREP on the directory STILL shows attachments in the name of accounts which have been deleted. And the disk size didn’t change based on a “du” check of the folder.
If you delete a user, the store belonging to.the user becomes orphaned. You have to delete the orphan with kopano-cli/kopano-admin.
Yes, I know. That’s already been done. I’m wanting to know about the attachments which apparently aren’t deleted even after the store is deleted. Any thoughts on those?
Then, there must still be a reference to it.
We run a script which deletes the userid from LDAP and then searches for the store and removes it. That’s done all at one time. Where could there possibly still be a reference to a non-existent store? I’m just trying to clean up GB of disk space.
When you are using LMTP then attachments in mails delivered to multiple recipients are just stored once on disk, but referenced from multiple mailboxes.
Its not a reference to a store, but a reference to the attachment i am talking about.
Will have to do more digging on some of the attachments referenced and see. Thanks.
