    Assuming that you want to be using maildir and courier (not mbox and cppop and uwimap), then you may want to force a reinstall of courier.

    Firstly:

    Code:
    /scripts/convert2maildir
    just to ensure that all mailboxes are in the correct format.

    Then:

    Code:
    /scripts/courierup --force
    to ensure that courier is definitely installed and running.

    I've previously found that if courier is being used as the pop server, if you restart pop through WHM, it starts cppop and doesn't restart courier - this tends to confuse things a little!

    I have the opposite problem with a new server installed yesterday

    I had to 'downgrade' cpanel to Stable-114 because of the problems of the latest release, and started transfering accounts from other server

    some accounts have their email stored as maildir, and would like to have them in mbox or maildir, but all in one format (never used maildir on cPanel before)

    Excellent!

    I've never encountered a wounder before and feel proud for having helped make one work.
