[THIN] Re: Deleting Ex2k BadMail directory

Can you check the items in the queue directory to see the nature of the
messages? May be virus driven by one of your clients, or if it is
obviously spam, someone may have compromised your system.

        I unchecked that setting.

        You may have to change domain passwords since the typical
setting is to allow relay on authentication.

                This seems to be a something else. I've taken relaying
off of our mailservers, all machines up to date with patches/AV... the
mailserver tries to make ~50 outbound connections per second. Bizarre.

                I'm not sure it's doing anything though in this
instance, since my drive space has been 31.5gb free for about an hour
and a half. :-)

                We run a batch file that changes to the badmail dir,
then del *.* /q. This is scheduled to run weekly from the AT scheduler.
Works well.

                        We tried the del *.* but it freaked out.

                        We used the rm.exe command (ported from unix)
and it worked FAST. (Windows Resource Kit)

                        Go to the command line set your default into the
directory and delete the contents (del *.*) . If you try from explorer,
it will crash. It cannot handle the amount of messages that appear
there.
