    I've got 2.5 gigs of stuff in my /home/user/mail/cur folder that are named 1167841465.158564.mbox:2 etc. Can I delete them?

    That are emails which are converted from an mbox file. Nobody here can decide if these emails can be deleted or not. If the account wasn't used via imap it might be an unused account with catchall activated. Which would mean that these 2,5 gigs of files might be only the spam of the last x months. But that is just a guess.

    Thanks. I wasn't missing any mail, and my mail client is set to delete all mail off the server, so I trashed them.
