not leaving them to be dealt with 6 months or more down the road. At this point, the emails are basically company property, and one of the company officers should be assigned to go through them and see what contents are there, make appropriate replies, forward to the new person in the position, whatever needs done. If they are personal emails, should be deleted and maybe a notice sent to sender that the "mailbox is no longer on the server" or some such notice. This should be documented before, during and after it is performed.
Ideally, this would have been done at the moment the individual employee involved was no longer employed.
