How to Delete Old Spam Message

  • Answered
I have a VPS server. Is there a method or software to install which will enable me to apply Spam Assassin to old emails which have already been received and are clogging various account mailboxes?
Hello, Thank you for submitting a question about how to delete old spam messages. Unfortunately, Spam Assassin only works on intercepting incoming spam. However, there are many email clients that allow you to filter messages based on certain parameters, and then you can follow up with a mass selection and deletion. That is likely the safest way to handle a large deletion operation. I recommend Mozilla's Thunderbird app. It's free, and the filtering options are very easy to use. Best, Christopher M.
