You can just delete files, but surgemail will limit the number it shows
to the user so as long as the total is still above that number it will
keep showing the same number.
You can increase the number using these settings.
There is a pop limit:
and an imap limit:
(those are the defaults)
Rather than increasing those settings which will just make the user
experience even worse as their email client has to keep scanning the
same messages every day, and your server's load worse... it's much
better to tidy up the accounts with settings like:
(or smaller, 90 days might be reasonable)
Which will archive messages older than 1 year to sub folders,
So the messages still exist, but won't be wasting resources every login.
