    Hello

    I noticed that on

    /home/user/mail

    for each email account there is a folder , for example

    /home/user/mail/user1
    /home/user/mail/user2
    /home/user/mail/user3

    and each folder contains inbox and inbox.pop files .

    Then there is also a folder called
    /home/user/mail/userdomain.com

    which contains again...

    /home/user/mail/domain.com/user1
    /home/user/mail/domain.com/user2
    /home/user/mail/domain.com/user3


    and again each folder contains inbox files ..

    Why these duplicates inbox files ??

    I think you are right , thank you.

    /home/user/mail/user1 should be for POP
    while
    /home/user/mail/userdomain.com/user1 should be for IMAP

    (however they don't seem symlinks)
