I am receiving reports from several users saying that they are receiving login errors
asking for a correct password. The curious thing is that all of them have been working
perfectly during the last days. So I was wondering if maybe a peak of use can cause
a condition where Exim is not recognizing user passwords.

Clamav is usually a memory hog on busy email servers, so who knows...

Hello :)

Is this system using Courier or Dovecot? What entries are logged to /var/log/maillog when this happens?

Thanks.
