if you look at surgemail.ini (probably in /etc) and find the definition
of the user's domain, you should see an entry with a path to the top of
the mail storage directory for that domain
e.g. on my server the paths are /var/spool/mail/domainname
if you dig into that dierctory you should be able to find the
subdirectory where his mail is stored.
what you do from there is up to you, but `rm -fr *` will remove
everything in that directory and subdirectories. just be careful that
you are in the directory you want to be in when issuing the rm.
