    I am using cPanel for my server for web and emails. There are 2 email boxes which consumes almost 2GB out of 5GB of storage. Users told me they have deleted large emails already, but on server, nothing changed. What could be wrong?

    Hello,

    You may want to check the disk usage for those accounts through the CLI to ensure that they are in fact consuming less disk space. Something like the following may be useful:

    Code:
    du -sh /home/$USER/mail/$DOMAIN.TLD/$MAILACCOUNT/
    Replace:
    $USER with the username of the account
    $DOMAIN.TLD with the domain name of the email account you're checking
    $MAILACCOUNT with the username for the email account

    Thanks!
