    I know dovecot stores my read email in /home/user/mail/domain/user/cur

    The last email in this folder is dated: Jul 17 2012

    Yet I have email in my imap account that dates back to 2011. I can verify this on all my imap clients. So where does this older email exist on the server?

    Hello :)

    Is this email stored in an email client or can you access it via your webmail applications? Also, are you subscribed to any additional directories that may exist in "/home/user/mail/domain/user"?

    Thank you.

    I think it is just a timestamp issues. I counted all the emails and they line up correctly. However the timestamps are off on the old ones.
