Hello,

Is there any way to store the emails in an encrypted file rather than just text (or compressed). Or have dovecot keep storing in individual files but encrypted.

At this moment, an attack to the website exposes the whole account making it easy to read the email files.

Also, storing the shadow password files in a better place, outside the account, would also be smart but, in this post, I'm just addressing the email storage that should be encrypted.

Any way to do that?

Kind regards
Daniel

Hello,

Email encryption is generally handled at the email-user level with the use of technologies such as S/MIME and PGP to sign, and encrypt, individual messages. This is not implemented directly in cPanel, as it involves the sender and receiver configuring these features in their specific email clients. That said, I encourage you to open a feature request if you'd like to see this type of feature offered in the product:

Thank you.
