We have a utility email account that has some 70,000 messages in the inbox that we want to just delete out. How can we delete these messages without using the webmail or other client? Is it as simple as deleting the messages out of the store?

Somebody please help.

Yes, though you have to make sure that the user is not accessing his mail (or just stop the mail server if you cannot be certain because of webmail or phones). Remove whatever messages you want. Then rename index.fld index.bad and it's done.

You could also just remove the entire INBOX folder. You may want to consider that as it is now very large and removing messages doesn't change that (OS issue. not Kerio).
