    Hi,

    The vps I use has been running cpanel X for approx 1 year. Recently I wanted to move my account to another server. When I check around the ftp server I've noticed the file /mail/inbox in one of the account has reached to a size of 4.4gb. after quickly checking in cpanel it does not know anything about a mailbox that have 4.4gb worth of mail, went thru a few mailbox but can't find them either. Is it safe to delete that file?

    Its safe to delete the inbox files, it won't cause any server side problems. But you will have to make sure that you don't need those emails. It seems you are referring the inbox of the default email account i.e. the one created when you add a domain.
