some weeks ago I posted a detailed description of my "lmtp read timeout"
- problem (
In the meantime I came a bit closer to a solution:
I did a backup of all the mails. I installed SuSE 9.0 and configured the
mail system and everything was working fine (LMTP delivered the mails).
Then I copied the "configdirectory" and the "partition-default" backups
into the system. May be there is a better way to restore the backups ?!
Afterwards LMTP refused to deliver the mails again ( lmtp read timeout ).
So, there must be a relationship between the LMTP failure and the old mails.
What is LMTP doing ? Has it difficulties with some rare characters ?
