       ipurge  -  delete  mail  from IMAP mailbox or partition based on age or


       ipurge [ -f ] [ -C config-file ] [ -x ] [ -X ] [ -i ] [ -s ]
              [ -d days | -b bytes | -k Kbytes | -m Mbytes ]
              [ mailbox-pattern...  ]


       Ipurge deletes messages from  the  mailbox(es)  specified  by  mailbox-
       pattern that are older or larger than specified by the -d, -b, -k or -m
       options.   If  no  mailbox-pattern  is  given,  ipurge  works  on   all
       mailboxes.   If  the  -x option is given, the message age and size MUST
       match exactly those specified by -d, -b, -k or -m.  The are no  default
       values, and at least one of -d, -b, -k or -m MUST be specified.

       Ipurge  by  default only deletes mail below shared folders, which means
       that mails in mailbox(es) below INBOX.* and user.* stay untouched.  Use
       the option -f to also delete mail in mailbox(es) below these folders.

       Ipurge  reads  its  configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file
       unless specified otherwise by -C.


       -f     Force deletion of mail in all mailboxes.

       -C config-file
              Read configuration options from config-file.

       -d days
              Age of message in days.

       -b bytes

       -m Mbytes
              Size of message in Mbytes (2^20 bytes).

       -x     Perform an exact match on age  or  size  (instead  of  older  or

       -X     Use delivery time instead of Date: header for date matches

       -i     Invert  match logic: -x means not equal, date is for newer, size
              is for smaller
