    Hi :),

    These are the folders/directories of the default email address of the cPanel user account. Like if your cPanel user is "cpuser" then that email address would be "cpuser@server.hostname.com".

    You can find the INBOX of the default email address in your cPanel >> Mail >> Webmail.

    Hi,

    Directories "/home/cpaneluser/mail/cur" and "/home/cpaneluser/mail/new" stores the mails which sent to default mail account (cPanelUser@serverhostname.tld).

    All the unread/new mails stored in directory "new" and all the read mails stored in directory "cur".

    Not sure about "tmp" directory, Maybe it is used to store some temporary files/mails.


    Thanks

    Thank you, that is it. Hostgator and Courier-mta.org describes it same way.
