    We had a customer delete all there email on accident and we would like to know if we can move the emails from the backups to the current account?

    And if we can what is the folder in the backups that holds the emails to move and where to move them in the current account.

    Also is there a special way to emend files when being moved to make sure they do not overwrite the current emails?

    Thanks!

    Hello :)

    Yes, you can extract a backup archive and copy over the emails to an account's existing mail directory. If restoring a backup archive, you will find emails located at:

    Code:
    /home/cpmove-username/homedir/mail/domain.com/email-account/
    You can also find emails from the default account within:

    Code:
    /home/cpmove-username/homedir/mail/
    The following thread is intended for manual migrations to cPanel, but it includes details about the maildir structure that will be useful to you:

    You can copy the data over to the matching email directories within the account.

    Thank you.
