Hi,

I wanted to instruct a customer how to backup their &Horder& folders, but I can't seem to find them in any customer's directory, not even mine.

Will someone please tell me where each customer's &Horder& folders are located (The folders that they create to hold their old sent mail, etc.).

Thanks.

I'm a bit lazy at the moment and haven't checked, but I'd think since horde uses IMAP that the folders would all be stored in the mail directory.

Correct they are files
if you cat /home/username/mail/foldername
It looks like an e-mail msg BUT look at the subjct line

Subject: DON'T DELETE THIS MESSAGE -- FOLDER INTERNAL DATA
And the body shows

This text is part of the internal format of your mail folder, and is not a real message. It is created automatically by the mail system software. If deleted, important folder data will be lost, and it will be re-created with the data reset to initial values.

Well, thanks, but I don't see it. I cannot correspond a single file in my &mail& folder that corresponds to any of the folders I have set up.

Found It

I have found the HORDE folders.

FYI

The folders are in

/home/username/mail/yourdomain.com/emailusername

Whereas &yourdomain.com& is your actual domain name.

I will tell you that little secret:)

Cpanel modified the paths to the mailbox recently from /home/user/mail/mailaccts/inbox

to

/home/user/mail/domain.com/mailacct/inbox

This was setup inorder to accomodate parked/sub domain mail accounts too

In the new version the parked domain would have mailbox path:
/home/user/mail/parkeddomain.com/mailacct/inbox

and subdomain

/home/user/mail/sub.domain.com/mailacct/inbox

But cpanel has not made this fully functional, it is yet to come.

Since Horde use IMAP, it does not have separate mailboxes, it uses the cpanel mailbox.

bmcpanel, you had a different setup because you are using the older version of cpanel:)

Regards.
