I've been managing the same WHM server for 6 years in a row now and out of the blue, without any update done recently (last WHM update was like 1 week ago) I just received 2671 old emails in one of the inbox that's on that server. For no apparent reason. I've been using Thunderbird with the same 4 inboxes for years and I've never seen that. Has anybody seen that recently with cPanel? I have not done any modification to that inbox nor the computer I'm getting my emails with, absolutely no change whatsoever.

Hey there! I haven't heard of similar behavior from other users, but if it's just one inbox it would seem like something specific to that account or user. Is it possible something changed with Thunderbird, or maybe the IMAP settings didn't work and it switched to POP?
