    Hi all,
    I've got an account with very large directories and more specific the .Junk firectory which lies under /var/vmail/mydomain/user/Maildir
    Same goes for the directory tmp which is also inside the Maildir.

    Is it safe to empty those directories and if yes what is the recommended way?

    For Junk I would just set "Purge Junk automatically after X days" in the mailbox (probably set for all mailboxes). I presume clearing old files from tmp dirs in the Maildir is probably fine, but I don't really know what those files are used for offhand. You could search the web for more info, or just make a backup of the mail files first before you clean things up to be safe.
