    The email might be hiding out in another folder. Try this:

    Code:
    cd /home/YOURCPANELUSER/mail/YOURDOMAIN/EMAILUSER/
    du -sh

    And see what comes up.

    Hello :)

    Disk space usage is recalculated every four hours for email accounts. You can try rebuilding the "maildirsize" file for this account with a command such as:

    Code:
    /scripts/generate_maildirsize --verbose --confirm $username
    Replace "$username" with the cPanel username of the account.

    Thank you.
