I was trying to delete a client’s all bounce emails that was caused by sending spam and rm -rf didn’t help me at this point

first of all try to look at the default value of argument list for your server:

type

getconf ARG_MAX
2621440

And you can sipmly increase this value by typing:

ulimit -s 665536

So you will see that argument list size increases by re-typing:

getconf ARG_MAX
170377216

That’s a quick turnaround for the problem
