Purge mbox'es on Tru64 4.0f/g

I have some large mboxes that need purging.

Is this an ok method (or is there a better more conventional way?)?

cd /var/spool/mail
cat /dev/null > somebox

Don't care to save. Thanks.

I've simply deleted the files without any problems but your method should work.

There are 10 kinds of people, one that understands binary and one that doesn't.
