    A client transferred his account from an old cpanel host but there appears to be issues with the mail formatting. No mails show up in the inbox (webmail view). Transfer was done via cpanel's backup manager. My box is using maildir format.

    Code:
    root@server [/home/user/mail/tmp]# ls -lh
    total 8.0K
    drwx------  2 user user 4.0K Mar 25 13:57 ./
    drwxrwx---  7 user mail    4.0K Apr  2 13:20 ../
    root@server [/home/user/mail/tmp]# cd ..
    root@server [/home/user/mail]# ls -lh
    total 28K
    drwxrwx---   7 user mail    4.0K Apr  2 13:20 ./

    You can scp the mail folder from the old server to the new server and replace it with the mail folder in the new server.
