    i made a wrong step
    i wanted to update permissions for a user account in /home/user/public_html

    but i forgot that i was in /usr
    so i executed
    /usr> chown username:username * -f -R
    /usr> chown username:username *.* -f -R
    and all permission for all folders and files becomes to username

    so i made
    /usr> chown root:root* -f -R
    /usr> chown root:root*.* -f -R


    but imap permission is wrong and i still have the fail message

    i tried to run /scripts/convert2maildir but nothing happened

    Are you using POP or IMAP to retrieve your email?
