some days ago we changed our mail server. We were running a
cyrus-imapd 2.1 on a Red Hat 7.2 box and now we installed a cyrus-imapd
2.2.10 on a Debian Sarge.
To do the migration I copyed all the users mailboxes and mail files
(spool directory) and the mail "data" (lib directory) to the new box
and, following the instructions from Cyrus page I converted the old seen
files to skiplist. I did a reconstruct -rf user.* and all seemed to be
running ok, also seen states.
The clients who are using this mail server are all MS Outlook XP. I
know it doesn't have a good IMAP support, but our users wanted it. With
some rules at clients we managed to store sent-mail on the IMAP server
automatically, but after some hours of use, that rules failed. Trying to
connect to the sent mailbox results on a System I/O Error on the client.
The cyrus log, says more or less the same:
imap: IOERROR: opening
eliminados/cyrus.cache: No such file or directory
I looked for that file (cyrus.cache) and it exists. It doesn't
happen to all users at the same time, I mean one user can have the error
while other user is working ok. But when accessing a mailbox fails,
almost all the user's mailboxes fail too.
I know hot to fix the error. If I reconstruct that user's mailboxes
all works ok again, but the IOERROR appears again after some hours of
works. I don't know how to reproduce it...
Anyone knows how to fix it? I installed the last cyrus-imapd version
(2.2.12) but it didn't fix it. The error appears many times a day... Is
it a cyrus-problem? Outlook??
Maybe useful data:
- Users have between 2000 to 6000 mails on the sent folder...
I hope anyone can help me. I don't know where to look and didn't
find anything in google...
Sorry for my poor english.
Thanks to all in advance.
