    Hi all, I am migrating from a cobalt machine, and it had a great functionality where I could use mutt to look at mailboxes as needed. I could change to a different user's mailbox as root. This was especially nice to see if a user was having an actual issue, or if they just didn't have any e-mail. Is this functionality in Plesk, and if so, how do I do it? Thanks for the help.

    you can check the dirs in

    /var/qmail/mailnames/DOMAINNAME/username/Mailbox/{cur,new}

    and view the files with cat

    --

    or you dump out the passwords and login vie webmail to help them out

    Since email is in maildir format with Plesk you need to tell mutt that:

    mutt -f /var/qmail/mailnames/DOMAIN/USER/Maildir -m maildir

    Where DOMAIN is the domain in question and USER is the user in question.

    This seems to work for me.
