    As the title suggests...

    In cPanel -> Bandwidth, I notice around 30M a month being used by IMAP for one of my client accounts.

    I don't explicitly offer IMAP email to them (the setup instructions I hand out are just for POP3 access) nor do they have access to cPanel.

    I've never disabled IMAP in WHM's Mailserver Configuration because there's a note below the checkbox saying 'cPanel's webmail requires that IMAP be enabled' - however I do allow them webmail access, and I know they have been using this fairly extensively to receive and send.

    So my question is, does webmail usage contribute to the IMAP figure in cPanel's Bandwidth logs?

    Thanks

    Yes, webmail usage contributes to IMAP for bandwidth due to the fact webmail uses IMAP.
