    A while back cpanel changed the mail system so it no longer uses hard links to have mail at
    /home/user/mail/mailbox
    and
    /home/user/mail/domain/mailbox
    for the POP account mailbox@domain.

    Some accounts still have users mail folders in both locations. It is safe to delete the /home/user/mail/mailbox folder right? Does it matter if they are deleted or not?

    I knew there was something about that before but couldn't get the right search terms to find that thread. Thanks again.
