For some reason I seem to be getting lots of email/log files being generated everyday which get stored in the /root/Maildir/new/ folder - this eventually takes up a lot of space on the server and can grind it to a halt if you dont remember to delete these files every so often.
I tried to attach a couple of examples of the files generated in txt format, but attachments are not working for me at the moment - anyway, they're mostly warnings about resource usage or suspicious activity: here's one extract from the files as an example:
Return-Path: email@example.com X-Original-To: root Delivered-To: firstname.lastname@example.org Received: by jim1.jim1.com (Postfix, from userid 0) id 997B84094D; Sat, 25 Jan 2014 04:00:07 -0500 (EST) From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: lfd on jim1.jim1.com: Excessive resource usage: apache (16793 (Parent PID:16789)) Message-Id: 20140125090007.997B84094D@jim1.jim1.com Date: Sat, 25 Jan 2014 04:00:07 -0500 (EST)

Anyone know how to stop these from being auto generated so they dont clog up my server?
