Is that file specification a directory or a regular filename? Do you own the file?

-r recurses a directory tree
-f means don't ask 'ok Y/N' or complain about missing files

The error message would help a lot....

I try this command: rm -f 'find . -type f -mtime +50' to erase files that are more of 50 days old in the follow directory
/var/storage/chroot-smtp/spool/output/0/input

In this directory show files like this:

-rw-r--r-- 1 chroot chroot 3066959 Sep 16 2008 0yahpx-0002yI-39-11447-K

I can not erase it. What I am doing wrong ??? the size of this directory is
de 11 GB

# du -sh /var/storage/chroot-smtp/spool/output/0/*
0 /var/storage/chroot-smtp/spool/output/0/db
11G /var/storage/chroot-smtp/spool/output/0/input
652K /var/storage/chroot-smtp/spool/output/0/msglog
4.0K /var/storage/chroot-smtp/spool/output/0/msglog.OLD
