I found a deserted email account with over 70.000 messages (few months of spam)
in my vpopmail 5.4.3 mail server on FreeBSD…


If I try to pop3 these (Outlook, Outlook Express, Mozilla Thudnerbird)


The problem is its responding like :  

Mail Sever … responded: unable to scan $HOME/Maildir


Pop3 workaround is to not to have more than 1500 messages in the Maildir…


Same problem happened after a week vacation, had to keep moving messages in and out of the maildir….
