    If more then 1 peson is trying to check the same email at same time, it creates a lock file. Only one person can access email for an account at the same time.

    Go on, have a guess
    If you want to avoid that issue, then you could migrate to the new maildir using courier-imap/pop3d. Because it is using maildir it only has to lock per email access instead of the whole mailbox.
