I did get a full dump on the ethereal, between the client & the "bad"
it looks like the oxs client is specifically requesting content
that will corrupt the mime ( not that i know enough about cyrus, to
it is as if it gets fedup, during the transfer and re-requests the
but WHY will it only do it on any server when this disk is moved to
the server, and Why is my other server ok with the osx client.
you can see from the above that it is re-starting the get!!
