    Hi

    I recently migrated a clients email from an imap server on her cpanel account to an office365. Whilst doing this I missed the emails in the inbox folder and only copied over the subfolders.

    I have a backup, and I can see all the mailbox folders, but which file do I need for the inbox?

    Regards
    Wayne

    Assuming you are using maildir, have a look in /home/<user>/mail/<domain.tld>/<mailname>/cur

    So if the cPanel user was myclient and the email address was clientname@domain.tld you would be looking for

    /home/myclient/mail/domain.tld/clientname/cur

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for your reply.

    It took me a while to realise, just because I'd deleted the clients mailbox from her laptop, the emails were still on the server, so I no longer need to use the backup. Thanks for your reply though.

    Regards
