    I get the following **Unmatched Entries** in my logwatch every day and wondered if anyone can shed some light on it

    /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/shared/index: No such file or directory: n Time(s)
    ... where n may be as little as 8 but usually around 60


    Also, I get this one daily but I think it may be superfluous

    LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]: n Time(s)
    ... where n is usually a couple hundred

    The "logouts" are okay. I think they're coming from pure-ftpd. You can safely ignore them. I wish I knew why the server logs into its own ftp server all the time.

    The reason I came to this thread, though, was to see what I could find out about your courier-imap index question. I noticed the same message while t-shooting a different Horde-related issue. Then, last night it came through my logwatch report, so it piqued my interest again.

    I looked at my old server where I didn't have the issue & remembered that I "fixed" the error by simply:

    Code:
    touch /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/shared/index
    This creates a zero-length file & gets rid of the errors. I did this back in June of last year & never had major probs ever since.

    As best I can tell, that index file is used to link multiple Horde users to common "shared" mail folders. I could definitely be wrong in this, though, so I'd be interested in hearing what other people have to say about it.

    P.S. - In case you hadn't realized it, you get that index message as soon as someone logs into Horde. "tail -f maillog" & then log into Horde & you should see it. After that, touch the file & the message should go away.

    Thanks for the info Matt,

    I'll give it a try a bit later. I'm curious too :)
