I am coming from the Windows/Ensim environment.

I am looking for the subdirectory where emails for individual email acounts are stored until the user downloads.

Thanks in advance!

Run the following to check, I think DirectAdmin may be stored in a different location to the default of exim for storage quota reasons.

# locate inbox
# locate *account_name*

One of the results im hoping will have the correct path to the files.

Guys,

I have found the subdirectory that you are talking about... but there are no individual emails, just a file without and extension that is the exact same name as the email address (without the @domain.com)....

How do you look inside that file?

Thanks again.

# cd /var/spool/virtual/domain.com/
# pico -w user

you *should* see a list of all current emails that have *not yet* been downloaded by the user.

To test send yourself an email, close your email client for a moment then check that user.

Hello,

The reason that they are only one file is because it's using the mbox format instead of the Maildir format. All emails are in the one file.
