Kerio Connect 9.2.3 (2929) on Mac OS X (10.11.3), x86_64

I am trying to put out a fire... OSX clients are downloading mail from the server until their drives are full.

One client on iMac downloaded 750 GB over the weekend and hard drive was filled. That user has about 15 GB mail on the server, so I am not sure what is being downloaded.

Other users with MacBook Airs have downloaded 20 - 30 GB to completely fill hard drive.

Not sure if it is coincidence but the clients are on 10.11.6. This is not happening on all clients as far as I am aware.

To stop the bleeding on the clients I have deleted the profile. This frees up the stolen space after 15 minutes or so, and I can then re-install the profile.

Any advice?

Do you have public folders?

I have had issues with Apple Mail downloading everything from Public Folders. Since newer versions of Mail don't offer the option to only subscribe (and download) only specific folders, you end up downloading all of the contents of all the public folders.

In my case, I had to reduce those to a minimum to keep from filling small SSDs.
