Hi

Since this morning IMAP and POP3 do not authenticate users anymore. I have enabled debug mode on dovecot and the following error is repeating for every authentication request:

552 5.2.2 Mailbox is full / Blocks limit exceeded / Inode limit exceeded

I have test accounts under few accounts and all of them are failing with the same error msg. Webmail works fine and I could log in and send/receive emails.
I've tried Thunderbird and Outlook with both secure and non-secure ports but no luck.

Disk space usage is under 30% and inode is at 2% .

Any suggestions?

That error message indicates that your mailboxes are full due to inode usage being exceeded. If you run something like the following what's the inode usage at?

Code:
df -i

Interesting, are you using anything like CloudLinux with limitations on inodes included in the package for CageFS?

Not in my case. It turns out that my issue was not connected with this issue, and has been resolved.
