Re: IMAP (Netscape?) hiccups in Woody
Well, this is bizarre:
# ls -l /var/spool/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 May 5 09:59 mail -> ../mail
# ls -l /var/
drwxrwsr-x 2 root mail 4096 Jul 14 18:04 mail
What created this symlink? I didn't.
I have quite a lot of messages like this in the mail log:
Jul 10 09:30:39 psanchez-1 imapd: Killed (lost mailbox lock)
user=psanchez host=psanchez-1 [127.0.0.1]
I will get rid of the symlink and test to see if that makes the
difference. I'll let you know.
