    Hello all,

    I have got a wierd issue. In my accounts mail folder a file named inbox.lock is created automatically. When I delete that it gets created whenever a new mail is sent or received from that account. Please let me know how to sort this.

    Regards,
    David

    Hurray

    I got the solution.. it worked...previosly posted by Michael(rs-fredo) thanks micheal

    he problem is caused by processes. Do a ps aux and you'll see lots of processes with the domain username, some imap, some cpop. Kill them all (kill -9 processNumber). Then delete the inbox.lock file.
    This fixes the problem.


    /scripts/fixpop //can also be done to solve


    Regards,
    David
