    Messages aren't stored as "EML" files in a user mailbox. At any rate, (a) if the email was sent TO a user on your system, (b) if that user has not downloaded their mail or if they leave a copy of their downloaded mail on the server you _may_ find a copy in:

    /home/useraccount/mail/userdomain/emailuser/cur

    [ex: /home/klorofil/mail/difnekfidus.org/phil/cur or /home/klorofil/mail/difnekfidus.org/phil/new]

    But, it's not going to be stored as an EML.

    If the email was sent to an external email address [external from the server that is], it isn't going to be stored anywhere on the system for you to download it unless the sender is local to the server and used IMAP [an IMAP client or webmail] and sent it via one of those methods -- in which case it might bein /home/useraccount/mail/userdomain/emailuser/.Sent or someplace like that.

    Thank you very much, Mike, currently, I am monitoring some spam sender, I just thinking about to intercept their outgoing mails and keep them as the evidence, suspend their account and lower the loading of our server, any good ideas?

    I have one. If you suspect spam and can see it coming out of your server, remove the account and let him go elsewhere.

    No love for spam here.

    Can you please let me know your way to monitor outgoing spam mail? How to intercept and download them?

    CSF also does a good job on alerting you, if an XX amount of mails have been sent. It also sends the subject line of the mails in the email alert.
