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.
