With the new backup physical email messages in 1.21.3 - how do you restore just one user's mail box? I tried uploading the mailbox into the /var/spool/virtual/domains.com/ directory, but exim is not reading the file. Is there a pointer that needs to be reset somewhere to an earlier message number?

Thank you.

Hello,

The file in the /var/spool/virtual/domain.com/user would need to be chmod to 660 and chowned to username:mail

Exim may need a restart (just to be sure).

Thanks for the help, I had changed the group and ownership but missed the chmod 660. Once I did the chmod it worked fine. Thanks again.
