Because when creating emails, those are first stored in temp space,
before beeing copied to your IMAP Drafts folder.
Usually those will be removed when sending those emails.
But sometimes they are never send, or the remove didn't work.

tempreaper deletes those stale files and the empty directories.

Check /etc/cron.daily/sogo ;-)

In that cron job we also removes uploaded files older than 7 days, which
are stored as OGo* files in /tmp with:
find /tmp -maxdepth 1 -type f -atime +7 -name 'OGo*' -delete

They stay behind, because sometimes the upload gets interrupted, or
times out.

All these housekeeping is necessary, in order to avoid full /tmp after
some time.


Kind regards,
