Locating and cleaning up Spam folders

If you get any message containing 'xxx mails found in Spam-/Trash-folders for yyy - please clean up' in the subject then proceed as follows:

  • if you use a imap client as MS Outlook, Thunderbird etc. then locate the Spam/ Trash Folder in the mailer directory tree and delete the containing emails after inspection. In case of no doubt that all emails are spam don't worry to delete the complete folder. The folder is created automatically if needed.
  • if you use a pop client downloading every email to you local host then you don't have access to the spam-folder first of all. In this case you should use the webmail interface to the MPE mailer via https://webmail.mpe.mpg.de. If you can't find the spam-folder in the directory tree then subscribe for this folder in the squirrelmail's folder menu. As stated above you can also delete the complete folder with the folder menu.
