    Hello everyone.

    I'm getting thousands of twitter emails to my domain, delete the folder and now nothing comes up and I get this error

    puu.sh/v8qEj/16b0c98406.png

    How can I restore the folder and get the mail again?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    If you have backup for your account then you can restore the folder from the backup.

    Hi,

    Probably deleting the folder caused it to break. You should not delete the folders that are created at the time of cPanel email account creation. You should probably create the folder back with the same set of permission that the previous one had to get it working..

    Hello,

    Try re-creating the email folder with the same permissions and ownership values. Additionally, once you do that, run the following command:

    Code:
    /scripts/mailperm $username
    Let us know if this helps.

    Thank you.
