Hi, I have a mail server running postfix + dovecot (acting as imap
server). Since my ISP blocks port 25 in and out, I use fetchmail to
bring the emails to my server.
I have only 3 email accounts running. 2 of them seem to run flawlessly,
but the third one is really starting to act weird. Some emails seem to
duplicate themselves (10-15 copies of the same email sometimes). For
exemple, I would print out all the emails in the morning. 30 minutes
later, in 1 shot, I get 60 'new' emails, which are actually copies of
the emails I had printed out before. This only happens on the account
where we get the most emails (around 150-200 a day); some of the email
directory (mbox type files) have over 60 megs/4000 emails.
Has anyone ever had problems with dovecot and large email volumes? Like
I said previously, the 2 other accounts have absolutely no problems, but
are also muh smaller in size (MB and emails).
System is running: 3.4-RELEASE (src and ports) + dovecot 0.99.10.5
(emails are in mbox format)
