    Can someone share your knowledge on ,passwd, ; ,quota, and ,shadow, file found at /home/username/etc/ dirs..Only some accounts have the files..AFAIK /home/username/etc/passwd and /home/username/etc/shadow are the files which hold the password and other information about the mail accounts..

    I am confused in understanding the file format starting with comma i.e ,passwd, ,shadow, or ,quota,..

    I value your comments..Please share yours..

    Also I did an extensive search on forums..If it is already discussed anywhere else I will appreciate it much if you could provide me the link..

    Thanks in advance
    John
