It's a cron-script based on ejabberdctl I run daily:

MYEMAIL="migri at xxxxxx.xxx"
FILENAME="`date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S`"
/usr/sbin/ejabberdctl backup $FILENAME.bak
/usr/sbin/ejabberdctl delete-old-messages 370 >/dev/null  2>&1
/usr/sbin/ejabberdctl delete-older-users-vhost jabber.i-pobox.net 500|mail -s " deleted
user" $MYEMAIL

ejabberdctl has the two parameters:
delete-older-users DAYS
delete-older-users-vhost VHOST DAYS

It will not only delete the users not logged in since that days but also users never
logged in.
I pipe it to mail to be notified about all deleted accounts.
