    Cpanel has wwwwaaaayyyyy to many bugs, expecially with email, and that stupid inbox.lock file.

    Does anyone know if Ensim or Plesk have so many bugs? I need a control panel that will work reliably, especially with email!

    That won't help you here ;)

    Maybe you should explain what bugs you are experiencing and we can help you.

    he's probably refering to the situation when some stupid users access the same email acocunt using webmail and pop3 clients simultaneosly.
    Inbox is locked, and the one that tried to check it second, gets an error.

    I had this problem, but it's not a cpanel issue, it's the whole mailing system that is spooky. UW imap sucks from to to bottom, and we have to live with it.

    What i did to fix that annoying problem:

    i made a cronjob that runs /scripts/mailperm every 5 minutes. annd i had no complaints since then(1 month or so). it may sound like a stopid resolution, but it works. on my servers, running that script takes less than half a second. And i can live with hafl a second lost every 5 minutes.


    just crontab -e

    then add
    */5 * * * * /scripts/mailperm >/dev/null 2>&1

    (or another number if 5 minutes is not good for you)

    then save cthe crontab, and enjoy.
    (you could try, at first, to leave the part after > out). You will get an email with everithing that was fixed. That is to see how often you have this problem, and how many clients are affected.

    Go on, have a guess
    You'll probably find most products as complex as cPanel will have bugs. Personally, I've hardly had a problem with the email system (certainly not with Exim) though I do suffer the broken inbox hardlink issue, which is annoying.

    If they are not resyncing, it seems you can safely remove the contents (inbox etc) in the hardlinked folders. Those folders are consuming unnecessary disk space when the linking is no longer functional.
