Making backup of Sendmail

Hello,

I have installed Sendmail 1.4.2-1 in a RedHat9. I would like to backup the mails of user accounts, so I want to copy all the mail files via Telnet to a Windows PC.

For that, I'd like to know what files do I have to copy and their paths!

If I have a user Jhon Doe, I will find these files:

/home/jdoe/mail/Drafts
/home/jdoe/mail/Sent
/home/jdoe/mail/Trash

So, I would have to backup those files.
But where are the INBOX mail files?

Thank you!

For the jdoe user his/her INBOX would be /var/spool/mail/jdoe.
