    Hello.
    I created an email account in the Cpanel which, however, I deleted. However, the previous user of this account continues to use and operate it. It is possible?

    If you delete an email account then the email files should have gotten removed.

    It's possible if they were say spamming that for a period of time after removal they may still be able to hold their session and continue sending spam for a period. You can restart dovecot and exim to force those connections closed if that is what you are seeing.

    It shouldn't be possible but @GOT does make a good point, does restarting dovecot and exim resolve the issue?
