What is the difference between Users and Total Mailboxes ?  There seem to be discrepencies.
For example:
Users: 972
Total Mailboxes: 1008


Users is a count of the user records in the wpdomain.db database.
Mailboxes is a count of the databases found in the ofuser directory for a given post office.
The differences usually come when users have been deleted from ConsoleOne but their mailboxes were not removed, so their userxxx.dbs remain in the postoffice\ofuser directory.
