King Notes nuking everything in a folder

This comes up once in a while in support; someone has thousands or millions of items in a folder, and they need to nuke the folder now.

Usually, the command to nuke everything in a folder is:

zmmailbox -z -m user01@domain.com ef /MyStuff

However, if the folder actually has "millions" of items in it, you may be inclined to remove 100 items at a time, and let the script run until all the items are removed.

Example:


#!/bin/bash

for msg in `zmmailbox -z -m user01@domain.com search -l 100 "in:MyStuff" | grep conv | awk '{ print $2 }' | sed -e 's/^-//'`
  do
echo "Removing "$msg""
zmmailbox -z -m user01@domain.com dm $msg
done
