    Hello guys.. seems I started having an issue with IMAPD on one of my accounts starting a few days ago.. once I say.. well could be a fluke, twice in the same week.. I'm thinking there is a problem.

    The problem, when the user tries to login he gets "Fork: can not be exectued" or some such error, I know the problem is because I have fork bomb on, BUT why would imapd have so many processes running?

    I did a ps for that user:
    Code:
    root@master [~]# ps -ef | grep voygr
    voygr    32139   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32140   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32141   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32142   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32143   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32144   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32145   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32146   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32147   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32148   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32151   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32152   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32153   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32154   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32155   954  0 08:05 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32717   954  0 08:12 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr    32718   954  0 08:12 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    voygr      736   954  0 08:29 ?        00:00:00 imapd
    root      1018 28641  0 08:32 pts/0    00:00:00 grep voygr
    
    And got that.. I can manually kill all the imapd.. but why would it form so many processes.. this seems to be the only one it's doing it on..

    Any suggestions?
