    Within individual mail directories within domains on my vps are dovecot.* files. Are these created as a part of cpanel? Or might these be hack files?

    Hello,

    It's normal to see files like this within the /home/$username/mail directory:

    Code:
    dovecot.index.cache
    dovecot.index.log
    dovecot.list.index.log
    dovecot-quota
    dovecot-uidlist
    dovecot-uidvalidity
    Does this match what you are seeing, or are there different file names?

    Thank you.

    This matches. Thank you for your response. I can rest easier now but still try to find the source of numerous smtp activity.
