    Hello Forum members,

    I haven't done this for a few years, but when trying to read email via SSH, things seem to have changed since my last attempt.

    I remember in the past accessing mail by going here:

    user@domain.com /mail / domain.com / username /

    And finding a directory named "inbox". Now I find the following, and regardless of which I open, I can't find mail to read.

    ./ courierimapuiddb .Drafts/ subscriptions
    ../ courierpop3dsizelist maildirsize tmp/
    courierimapkeywords/ cur/ new/ .Trash/
    courierimapsubscribed dovecot-uidlist .Sent/

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello :)

    Mail storage is now handled with Maildir instead of Mbox. The actual received emails will be stored in the following locations:

    /home/$username/mail/$domain.com/cur
    /home/$username/mail/$domain.com/new

    The "cur" directory is for emails already delivered and viewed in an email application, and the "new" directory is for emails that have been delivered but not yet downloaded into an email application.

    Thank you.
