    Hello :)

    Have you checked the email directory for the user manually to confirm there is no disk space usage? For example, you could run a command such as:

    Code:
    du -sh /home/username/mail/domain.com/email-user
    Does this also show lower usage than is reported? Keep in mind that disk space usage for email accounts is only recalculated every four hours.

    Thank you.

    You can try rebuilding the "maildirsize" file for this account with a command such as:

    Code:
    /scripts/generate_maildirsize --verbose --confirm username
    Thank you.
