1. SPRING CLEANING OF SULMAIL ACCOUNTS
Systems staff is preparing for a major move of the Sulmail server to Forsythe Hall. In preparation for that move, we are urging staff to take some time to clear unnecessary email messages from their sulmail accounts. This will help speed up the backups that are necessary before the move.
There has been a significant increase in the amount of storage used for email messages. One specific area where storage has increased, and where messages might be removed, is in sentmail folders. If you use such a folder, a copy of every piece of mail you send is stored there. As a result, this folder can grow extremely large unless it is managed on a regular basis. Other likely candidates for removal of email messages are those folders pertaining to projects that have ended.
Please keep only the email messages you need. It will help us manage the size of the server's filesystems without imposing quotas. Finally, if you use your sulmail account solely for forwarding mail to another mail system (Leland), please let us know if we can delete your sulmail account.
