    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,

    The result returned several accounts.
    How can I detect the account that connect repeatedly.

    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.
