    Hi All,

    In pop3 email account is it possible to determine which email account is using bandwidth ?

    one of the account is using near about 8G bandwidth per day but I couldn't find which one :(

    Please advise - I have the same issue. Cpanel user account is consuming 12gb of pop3 bandwidth today alone. The logs don't show which user it is coming from. Just shows pop3 is the culprit.

    Hello :)

    Could you let us know the version of cPanel running on this server?

    Code:
    # cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
    While there are no native tools that will give you the bandwidth per email account, you can find unsorted bandwidth data for POP3 in the following file:

    Code:
    /var/log/maillog
    I suggest searching the above file for the domain name in question to determine if a specific email user is displaying more activity than others. EX:

    Code:
    # grep domain.com /var/log/maillog
    Thank you.

    I would also like to add that if you feel the POP3 bandwidth data displayed in cPanel/WHM is not accurate, feel free to open a support ticket with us so we can investigate that for you:

    Thank you :)
