This function lists a cPanel account’s email accounts.

 To prevent falsified data or symlink exploitation, the function uses the specified cPanel account user, rather than root user, to read data from the user’s home directory. The system compares the collected data from the user’s home directory to a server-wide domains list. The comparison of the data validates whether you can trust the data.
