Deletion of .DS_Store file created on IMAP mail storage space

The SFC-CNS IMAP server stores mail in a Maildir folder in your personal home directory on SFC-CNS.
If you open this folder in Finder on a Mac shared computer, a hidden MacOS-specific file named .DS_Store is created.
This file stores the folder's custom attributes, such as folder display options, icon locations, and other visual information.
The presence or absence of this file in the Maildir folder has no effect on the operation of Mac shared computer terminals.

However, if this .DS_Store file exists when an email client fetches emails, the IMAP server generates a large number of error log entries.
Since this is not desirable from an operations point of view, we will remove .DS_Store files stored in user email directories.
This deletion process will not affect the mail environment.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation for the stable operation of SFC-CNS.
