    Sometime over the last couple of days I recieved a cpanel update that caused my mail delivery to switch to mbox vice maildir. Everything is setup to maildir but of course does not deliver mail to the maildir folders and users complain they are not recieving mail. I manually run /scripts/convert2maildir and it moves the mail to the Maildir folders but as soon as a new message comes in, a new mbox file is created for the user.

    What config files and setting can I check/change to ensure the system is indeed configured to use Maildir.

    Thanks for the help,

    Go on, have a guess
    Check /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and make sure maildir=1 then run:

    /scripts/eximup --force

    make sure it runs through cleanly without errors. Then rerun convert2maildir for any other emails that went through incorrectly.
