How to View Archived Emails via Webmail?

The email archiving feature helps a cPanel user to save incoming, outgoing or mailing list messages for a particular domain for a specific amount of time. You can find this compressed file under the mail directory in cPanel file manager. Every day, a new directory will be created in the format “YYYY-MM-DD” that contains all the archive type’s messages.

By default, the email archiving feature is enabled, with a retention period set to last 7 days.

When you archiving mailing lists, the messages that get sent out to remote users on the list when a message is received are retained in the archive and the disk space usage is only recalculated once every day.
