They are used for new emails to MIME encode the content before storing
them in IMAP Drafts folder.
Usually they should vanish after sending that email.
Sometimes this doesn't work.

Therefore exists a removal cron job

You should check, if the SOGOSPOOL variable in it is set to the correct
It either uses "tmpreaper" or "find ... -delete" for removing old files
and empty directories.

If you change this cron job, you have to do so again after each update
of sogo, as it will be overwritten every time with the default one.

Kind regards,
