    Hello, I am currently thinking of converting the biggest email accounts to mdbox to help with performance.

    I was wondering if there is any disadvantages to move to mdbox, I am asking because in WHM on the conversion screen, under maildir, it says "improves reliability"... Does that mean mdbox would be less reliable ? In the case of restoring a cpanel backup (made with WHM), does the mailbox format affect anything ?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    There's a post on this topic at:

    Conversion to mdbox

    If a cPanel account uses Mdbox, but the most recent backup you are restoring is from when the account uses the Maildir format, then you'd need to convert the account to Mdbox again after restoring the backup.

    Thank you.
