Does anonymous FTP really need Maildir and logs folders?


#1

Does anonymous FTP really need Maildir and logs folders? I’d delete them if they were listed in the panel interface, but they’re not.

Also, I used the panel interface to try to delete the /incoming folder, but that didn’t take, it’s still there.

I will not suggest you to delete Maildir and logs directories. You will definitely need logs for debugging, troubleshooting, or maintenance stuff.


#3

there’s no real need to go around deleting things. Is your home directory too cluttered?


#4

This isn’t my home directory, it’s very specifically for anonymous FTP file storage. Extraneous folders are distracting and inelegant.

Those folders are permanent. I suppose Support could delete them if they really wanted to, but I suspect it’s against the rules for account consistency, or it’d break something.
