    Are you using Maildir now? Or did you convert from Mbox to Maildir format?

    I'm not sure what I did, but when I backup the account and moved to a new server it doesn't have it any longer.

    your new server is running maildir which is what Cpanel does for any newly cpanel installation box but your old box is not running maildir.

    try this out:

    service chkservd stop
    service courier-authlib stop
    service courier-imap stop

    Open up /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and set maildir=0 ( if there's no entry there, just add in )

    Following, run the following command in sequence:

    /scripts/eximup --force
    service cpanel restart
    service xinetd restart
    service chkservd start
