    In /var/log/messages:

    May 13 11:50:19 cpanel1 imapd: /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/shared/index: No such file or directory
    May 13 11:50:19 cpanel1 imapd: /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/shared/index: No such file or directory


    Should anything be done about this, or is this benign?

    I'm also seeing similar entries via logwatch.
    What is missing?

    That index file is used for IMAP Folder sharing. Simply touch that file and the messages should go away.

    I noticed this also on a LogWatch today.

    What would cause this file to disappear suddenly?

    Thanks Kenneth. I hadn't noticed that you responded to this or I would have said thanks earlier :)

    My shared folder does not contain a index file. Please advise on how to proceed.
    This is the error I am receiving in the IMAP section of Logwatch: /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/shared/index: No such file or directory: 17 Time(s)

    Kenneth,

    I'm still not clear on how to handle this. I'm interpreting what you are saying as there should be a file called index in the folder labeled shared. That folder is empty. Please explain what you are referring to as touch the file.

    Touching a file is the process using the touch command on a file (that may not exist). So to touch /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/shared/index, just type the command:

    touch /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/shared/index
