Backup in ClearOS does not save user data, logs or mail files.

Back up does not contain the mail files unless the version has changed.

Do you have a test machine to test the back up?

I have checked the ClearOS forum for e-mail backups, but found nothing. I am new to ClearOS. Can you confirm if the backup contains the mail files?

I do not have ClearOS in my lab but I have worked in clearOS in the past, it did not contain mail files.

I would recommend checking with ClearOS for confirmation.

Did you look into this documentation: "Restoring emails"

reconstruct -r user:<username>

Open in new window


The command 'reconstruct -r user.john' runs ok but it takes less than a second to execute so I'm not sure if it's completed ok.

Reconstruct rebuilds inboxes by reading the configuration from imapd.conf, the user is trying to recover deleted emails.
