Delete public mailbox

NethServer Version: 7.7.1908
Module: nethserver mail server

As a test I created from Nethserver UI a public mailbox with name “Junk”. Since there is no use within my environement I want to delete this mailbox. There seems to be no way to delete this public mail folder.

If I use the command ‘doveadm mailbox delete -u vmail -s Junk’ the mail box is deleted just until the next nightly cronjob runs, reactivating this mail box.

Is there any way to permanently delete this public mailbox?

Regards, Guus

The Junk public mailbox is now a default public mailbox so no need to delete it:

The Junk public mailbox is created during the Mail module installation, granting IMAP access to the root user; further permissions can be added from the new Server Manager Email application or with an IMAP/ACL client, like Roundcube.


Adding this to this thread, in case someone needs.

This public mailbox create an error when trying to sync/migrate to Office 365 or using external archive services like Libraesva Archiver

To delete this folder, first disable the junk setting in Email-Mailboxes-General Setting

Then you can remove the Junk Folder in Public Folders
