    Hi,

    I need to migrate a few mail users from Plesk to cPanel and I would like to know how cPanel store its user? Does it store in a datbase? if yes, which database/table? So that I can just import the account from Plesk to that table.

    Need advice. Thank you.

    Go on, have a guess
    No, it uses flat files. Virtual email accounts are setup within:

    /home/accountname/etc/domain.com/*

    The cPanel copy script will copy an account from a Plesk server to a cPanel one. I've never used it so I cannot say how well it works.
