    I deleted an email account by mistake (I mean not the whole domani just user@domain.com).
    Luckly I have a full backup that I take every 30 mins but I don't know which files to restore to recreate that account.
    I created again the account in CPanel but of course the folders are empty in the webmail, while the old one had many stuff.
    I really need some help... thanks

    Ok found it /home/account/mail/domain/useremail restored all the files there... sorry for bugging was panicking :)

    By the way, while the mails are all there, in the CPanel admin section I see the quota to zero just like if it's empty but there are 200mb of mails there... how can I fix it?

    Update... I sent a test email and it recalculated the quota. All ok :)
