Do you run mailservers, webservers, fileservers?  Do any of those have
personal files outside of /home?

Mailservers usually have the user's inbox in /var/spool/mail.
Webservers usually have /var/www/html for their default serving space.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
