    Hi,

    I have a problem, some customers can't download their emails, because their account are locked, they use a email client to download email.

    I look the inbox locked and I see a file inbox.lock, this file contain the PID of the process cppop ir run in this moment. I need kill the process and remove the inbox.lock to the customer can download their emails, but, in a short time their accounts are locked again.

    do you have some idea to fix it?

    Best regard.

    Go on, have a guess
    It's an issue with mbox format POP3 servers. The best way to resolve the issue for good is to migrate to maildir using /scripts/convert2maildir. Search the forum for implications of doing this.
