Technical Support for email server

  • Answered
I have one question regarding email server
suppose every mail user has a mailbox location and the path will be var/mail/user
example user1 has a mailbox location var/mail/user1
if what the mailbox location of user1 will be mistakenly change into var/mail/user2
will the mail for user1 deliver in user2 mailbox it is possible

Thanks for the question regarding the email server. The mail box locations are generally saved in a location that is not changed by the user. The mail options are controlled through cPanel and they get written onto the web server BY the program - not by a user. Alterations COULD be made, but if they don't match up, then the mail account will not work properly. Therefore, you're hypothetical comment about mail from user1 going into the user2 mail box is not very likely and improbable. InMotion Hosting uses cPanel for its server interface. When creating mail accounts all of these processes are handled internally, and the folders created are not placed somewhere outside of the area where website files and folders are regularly added, deleted or modified.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.
