    That's where it goes.

    Did you look down the whole directory tree? If you did and the inbox files are empty, then the account holder has downloaded all of their POP3 email.

    If you didn't, then you probably need to look for the virtual accounts under home/[account]/mail/domainname/virtaccount/
