    If someone had dave@domain.com as an email... where would those messages be stored if I needed to remove them for him?

    They are usual stored in this area;

    /home/user/mail/

    Under that should be the mailbox for each mail id as well as for subdomains in this area

    /home/user/mail/subdomain/

    Hope that helps!

    All I see in there is one file called inbox. Shouldn't there be a seperate file for each email message? Or will deleting the inbox file delete every message on the account?

    Thanks

    The inbox file is all the messages.
