    Well its been over an hour and gmail is still deleting my spam.

    Is there any way to have gmail delete spam every day and not every month?

    I now see after receiving over half a million emails today in 70,000 gmail threads, that adding my email address to a vps wanting to be notified of failed log in attempts was the wrong thing to do lol

    The 10,000 a day average was ok to manage, but this is taking forever, any help appreciated.

    Pretty sure you can't change the frequency for spam deletion. Can you not do a search and delete all?

    I started the delete all at 11pm and its still deleting.

    I was hoping the frequency could be changed to daily, just in case I get a couple of days on the run like this.

    Hey ho.

    Ahh yes I know that feeling. I have an account just for cron reports that fills up the 16gb every once in a while. I have to delete the whole thing which takes a fair ole while! Good luck :)
