    When I run /scripts/convert2maildir and choose option 1 to backup mail folders, I get the following error:

    Backup directory () does not exist or is not configured in Web Host Manager! at /scripts/cPScript/MailDir.pm line 30, <STDIN> line 1.

    I have backup disabled in WHM under "Configure backup". Does it have to be enabled for this to work? Or is something else wrong here?

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, you need to temporarily enable the WHM backups and create a directory (before enabling the backups) and set it in WHM to that location where you want the mbox backups to be stored. Once done you can then disable the WHM backups again.

    Thank you, it worked!

    It appears that the process has finished, since this is the last line in the file /var/cpanel/updatelogs/maildirconversion.xxxxxxxxxx:
    [maildirupdate] Update Complete

    Does this mean that everything went smoothly, and I can now delete the backup files?
