    Could you try switching to IMAP to see if you still have issues with this happening? It seems that POP3 is terminating the connection unexpectedly. IMAP is a better protocol for message retrieval.

    Also, check /var/log/exim_mainlog for more clues. Sounds to me almost like you might have two POP3 devices fighting for mail.

    Hi,

    i got solutions :)

    in the webmail there were few mails, from System Administrator with sub : message unavailable

    And from the webmail i am unable to view, delete, forward or move those mails & which is causing this issue.

    So i have logged in to SSH & found these files by running this command

    ls -lah
    then i have changed ownership
    by
    Code:
    chown cPuser.cPuser 1295680540.H404988P19775.myserver.domain.com,S\=1794:2,S 1295685348.H3552P12846.myserver.domain.com,S\=1432:2, 1295689542.H771861P7288.myserver.domain.com,S\=1464:2,
    And then i did restart exim & check retrying mails in outlook express & mails were just receiving fine
    problem got solved.

    Thanks :)
