    Hi there

    Right now my cpbackup-exclude.conf is like that:

    1. In this way i can make backups without e-mail files ?
    2. cpbackup-exclude.conf is only for legacy backup system ?

    Hello :)

    I tested a backup generation with those entries in the /etc/cpbackup-exclude.conf file and it does successfully keep those email files out of the backup archives. The /etc/cpbackup-exclude.conf file applies to both the new backup system, and the legacy backup system.

    Thank you.
