The directories ‘new’ or ‘cur’ is responsible for default account. You can find both directories in /home/username/mail/cur and new is in /home/username/mail/new. If you want to delete e-mails for default cPanel account follows the following steps

# cd /home/username/mail/cur

# rm –rf *

Removes files from new

# /home/username/mail/new

# rm –rf *

You remove files using above command from cur and new directories. You can’t be change the disk quota in cPanel because the disk quota is cached in the “maildirsize”. You can either delete the file or just change the name.
