Stalwart Mail Server runs periodically automated tasks that perform essential maintenance to ensure efficient use of storage and optimal database operations. The schedule for these tasks is configured using a simplified cron-like syntax:
<minute> <hour> <week-day>
<minute>: minute to run the job, an integer ranging from 0 to 59.
<hour>: hour to run the job, an integer ranging from 0 to 23, or
*to run the job every hour.
<week-day>: day of the week to run the job, ranging from
*to run the job every day.
All values have to be specified using the server's local time.
- to run the job every day at 3am local time the syntax would be
0 3 *.
- to run the job every Tuesday at 5:45am local time, the syntax would be
45 5 2.
