The most common reason for this is the compile-time mailbox size limit that popa3d has in order to prevent a single huge mailbox from causing excessive load on the entire server. Since most people don't bother to read documentation to become aware of the limit and adjust it as necessary, I have raised the default all the way up to 2 GB for popa3d 1.0+. Older versions of popa3d had the default at 100 MB and later at 200 MB. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
