    I have 2 questions about mail configuration:

    1) when I add a new mail account from cPanel, is there any file on the server that I can check to make sure the addition went through?

    I have a VPS server and I'm not sure if cPanel works right (due to my own changes). Seeing a file that contains the newly-created account would help.

    I can't test e-mail directly, because I haven't transferred the domain name yet (so the VPS really only has an IP address).

    I've tried to grep the new account name in /etc, /usr/share, /usr/lib to no avail -- which worries me.

    2) more generally, is there a document that describes how cPanel, exim and courier cooperate?

    Assuming you have created an email account for "EMAILUSER@DOMAIN.COM" where the hosting account user is "HOSTINGUSER":

    A directory called "EMAILUSER" is created and located at: /home/HOSTINGUSER/mail/DOMAIN.COM/EMAILUSER

    Not really - forums tend to be the best place if you use the "search" facility. Links to other useful sites/tutorials can also be found in these forums. Other than that, check the standard cPanel documentation:
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
