    Hello;

    We are using squirrelmail and horde as webmail client. It ocassionally happensa thath some mail box gets locked and it does not responds.

    Logon scripts take long (upto 30 min) to execute. This happens with some mail boxes frequently.

    mail box becoems inaccessible thru web mail and outlook client

    Why does the mail boxes gets locked ? HOw can this be avoided ?

    regards

    Can happen by accessing mail through webmail and email client at the same time. Solution is to delete the inbox.lock and EITHER remove the rogue PID or restart cppop.
