Squirrelmail / Dovecot / Sendmail problem - ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.


I just installed Fedora Core 6 and I'm having problems with SquirrelMail. I'm using Squirrelmail/Dovecot/Sendmail and when I log into Squirrelmail and try to view any folder that contains any messages I get:

ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
Query: SORT (ARRIVAL) ISO-8859-1 ALL

Now, I've tried to disable server side sorting in Squirrelmail but that only leads to a new error message:

ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
Query: FETCH 1:* (FLAGS UID RFC822.SIZE INTERNALDATE BODY.PEEK[HEADER.FIELDS (Date To Cc From Subject X-Priority Importance Priority Content-Type)])

I'm using the default setup and IMAP mail is working. Using Thunderbird I can read email using IMAP. So the problem only appears when using Squirrelmail. I had the exact same setup in Fedora Core 5 and it was working perfectly. Same config files and everything.

Okay, I noticed that doing a "rm -rf mail", deleting all my old mail, solved my problem. Did I have too many old messages or ones that were too big?

I'm not able to receive mail and see the mail inside the folders.
