    is anyone experiencing similar problems? it seems that a lot of customers are experiencing slow download via pop3 and also lock files are not being removed correctly. This isn't effecting one server it is effecting many across several different continents.

    anyone else as i haven't seen this brought up yet? it may be we notice it more because of the number of clients hosted on our network, it defiantly is a problem however,

    fedora core 2 BTW for OS release, and its happening on current/release/stable of cpanel

    Go on, have a guess
    Are you running cppop? If so, if you have any users who leave messages on the server it will drag down the performance of both cppop and the server as a whole. Basically, the only rememdy would be to convert to maildir since that bypasses the issues of slow access and pop locks completely.
