Just recently had to have my VPS moved to a new server thanks to the lovely ebury virus

Anyway, one of the people who has a domain on my server asked me if it is possible to do a backup of his emails so if a transition is ever needed int he future he will not lose email data.

Not looking to backup just the email account but the actual email messages on the server.

Is that something that is possible in cpanel? I see the backup option of the home directory but see nothing pertaining to actual email messages.

Hello :)

Email messages stored on the server are included in the standard cPanel generated backup archives. If you prefer to manually backup just the emails, you could backup the following directory:

Code:
/home/$username/mail
Thank you.
