    I know cpanel reports some pretty funky number for mailbox usage, but this one has me a bit stumped. I have a user account with one mailbox.

    The mailbox is being reported at 54Mb, although the usage on disk is over 360Mb.

    The default email account (i.e. username@) shown at the bottom of the cpanel email accounts screen is showing as 124Mb. Now I can't find where this space is being counted from? I thought this mailbox was also kept in the user's home directory? Does anyone know where the default email account mailbox data is stored?

    I have removed the maildirsize files, and run

    /scripts/generate_maildirsize --confirm username

    but this has had no effect.
