Hi everyone,

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 ?
