Hello,

Our whm server is configured to use dovecot(pop3), and I'm looking to retrieve the all of the emails between one of our users and an external party.

In the file dovecot.index.cache I can find several conversations between these 2 people, but the contents in encoded. How can I make this human readable? I read about this tool, but I can't get it to work "Doveadm-Dump".

Is there a better location to find all the emails for a given users that is in a readable format? incoming and outgoing.

Thanks.

CMM is basically only looking inside /cur, the emails I'm looking for are not there. The file that has the content that I need to see is dovecot.index.cache. but it's encoded/unreadable. The tool doveadm dump only decodes the index file but not index.cache...
