rmm has an -unlink switch that inhibits comma file creation:

    Alternately, if you wish for rmm to really remove the files
    representing these messages, you can use the -unlink switch.
    But messages removed by this method cannot be later recovered.

If you normally use an rmmproc, that can be inhibited with -normmproc.
I use an rmmproc that defeats -unlink by itself, so I would need
-normmproc along with it.

And my best wishes to you, Peter.
