In the kernel, is UFS_DIRHASH enabled, or whatever the option is? This caused a lot of trouble on another server i admin, where it would be so slow, that at times login sporadically failed. It is enabled by default, and it would be stupid to have been removed, but you never know.Hm...I'm pretty new to BSD (more used to Linux) so I'm not sure how to discover kernel compile options...but AFAIK the guy who set all this stuff up just used a generic 4.6 kernel config.
If anything see if it is possible to at least upgrade to the last 4.10 version, as there have been a lot of overall improvements (This is off topic BTW)Yeah, that's on my overly long to-do list.
Also, when you manually auth using pop3:
telnet localhost 110 user <username> pass <password> list
What is the output? (Please truncate, if the user has a ton of emails, we don't need the entire list)
Or does it die saying can't scan maildir?
per my earlier post, it dies with the Maildir scan ERR.
Does this only happen for his account,
and have you tried to mv the Maildir,and then /var/qmail/bin/maildirmake Maildir in the same dir, then chowning it to the right user and then trying to login again to see if it succeeds then?I didn't try that, but when I do, it authenticates correctly. This is good.
So now: I read somewhere that it's not a great idea to manipulate the queues directly; what's the consensus? Can I not just move the messages back into the appropriate directories in the new Maildir I just created?
