I have a very strange problem, and it's only occuring on one mail box. I generally use IMAP for email (due to a few lost emails in the past), and quite often use squirellmail when I'm on the road. For the past week or so, I noticed that none of my emails gets deleted off the server. My account has plenty space left, so it's not that.

If I'm in IMAP, I click on delete, it seems like the email is deleted, but the moment I restart my mail client, they're all back again. If I try and delete it from Squirrelmail, I just get taken to the message list (what's supposed to happen when you delete an email), but the email is still there.

Running the fix mailbox permissions command from WHM didn't fix the problem @ hand.

Any suggestions?

same here - very frustrating

emails just wont get deleted - squirrel mail / horde and thunderbird ( using IMAP ) - no chance to get emails deleted

also ran fix mailbox permissions - and the users quota is no problem

strange
suggestions are welcome

running
WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.0-C117
CentOS 4.4 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

just remembered - i did reset the server certificate yesterday - then all this started mybe it is connected mybe not...
and this is just on 1 account - 1 emailadress - which has about 4k emails in it with total size of 290MB


thx

did cp inbox to inbox_old -

rm inbox - and touch inbox

i guess the size of the mailbox was too big

solved it for me
