Hello,

Do you have root access to the system? If so, you can find email activity logged at /var/log/maillog. You can search this log for terms such as "dovecot: imap" to see IMAP activity. Look for the "in=" and "out=" entries, as those represent the incoming and outgoing bandwidth associated with the session. EX:

Code:
grep "dovecot: imap" /var/log/maillog
Thank you.

Hello,

There's no option available in cPanel & WHM that's going to provide you that information in an easy-to-see format. It's going to require browsing through /var/log/maillog or coming up with custom bash commands to search through it. Here are a couple of threads you may find helpful:

Thank you.
