Anwering to myself... not really. The problem went away temporarily. When load goes up again, it comes back. So my last attempt was to rebuild vpopmail with these 2 more ./configure options: --enable-file-locking=n --enable-logging=n It's not the best thing to do, but well, we're moving all data off from this server to a new server as scheduled earlier. :) Cheers, Kittiwat
