    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


    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.
