View Full Version : dovecot pop3 mail problem
17th December 2008, 04:08 PM
Hi, I'm receiving the following line in my maillog and users can't pull down mail. Sending is ok.
dovecot: child 14350 (pop3) killed with signal 6
I restarted dovecot and sendmail with no success.

Here are a few more lines from the maillog:
dovecot: POP3(ddry): file mail-index.c: line 1788 (mail_index_move_to_memory): assertion failed: (index->fd == -1)
dovecot: POP3(ddry): Corrupted index file /home/ddry/mail/.imap/INBOX/dovecot.index: Record field mbox alignmentation 8 not used

FYI - problem solved. One of our consultants installed pcap and it was dumping log files into a users home directory since June until the volume filled up. We killed the process and deleted the log files and all turned back to normal.
