Badmail directory

By Eminent87 ·
Hi,

My badmail directory have reached 3GB and it's taking a really long time to open up that folder. In fact, I have yet to open it up. Does anybody know of an easy way of openning this folder up and delete all the junks that's in there? Thanks!

The easiest way i've found is to open up a dos prompt and navigate to the badmail directory using dos commands. Then just delete *.* and it will appear to hang for a while, but it clears much faster than going thru windows.

I tried this but nothing get deleted. It just get stuck there forever, just like if I was trying to open it. So far I have no success at either openning it or deleting any of it. Thanks for trying tho.

agrantham@aiken.net please add another comment so I can give you your points. I was quick to reject your answer but I have found that it is the best answer. After 2 days, I was successfully able to clean out my badmail directory. I was also able to combine your answer and made a batch file to automate this process. Thanks for your help!
