    Did the maildir conversion recently. But Courier Imap seems to timeout every 60 secs. I did try to see if I can set the timeout limit in /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/ but couldn't find a way to do it. Any help in this matter is appreciated.

    I would love to get some help doing this too. We have the exact same issue every 60 seconds.

    Did you re-inctall/upgrade exim using: /scripts/eximup --force after the conversion? You can also re-build courier by runng this command: /scripts/courierup --force

    it's not broken it's timeing out. The operations are for rather large folders, it gets to 60 seconds and dies cause of the time out. I don't need to rebuild it cause it's working fine other wise i just need to know where to up this 60 second thing.

    Go on, have a guess
    No, no need to rebuild/reinstall anything.

    It could be this setting in /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/imapd

    IMAP_IDLE_TIMEOUT=60

    You could try doubling that and then restarting courier:

    /scripts/restartsrv_courier

    Inetd.conf is actually what is spawning imapd, from this line.

    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/imapd

    any idea where the config file would be for this?
