I've seen this was mentioned before but remains unsolved. I upgraded
Dovecot from 0.99 to v1.0.alpha4 yesterday and it rendered my inbox
Dec 15 00:09:07 sand dovecot: imap(willers): Corrupted index file
/home/willers/mail/.imap/INBOX/dovecot.index: messages_count too large
(1121 > 1115)
I've since moved that inbox away so I can view my new mail again. The
error has moved with the mbox file:
Dec 15 00:27:41 sand dovecot: imap(willers): Corrupted index file
messages_count too large (1121 > 1115)
Dec 15 00:27:41 sand dovecot: child 83886 (imap) killed with signal 11
This is on FreeBSD 4.8 (yes, yes ... but: "up 687 days" which is quite
nice) all running on local disk. So earlier suspicions about NFS or MacOS
X are out of the window.
One day I'll move move from mbox to dir format and the problem will go
away, in the meanwhile, I thought it would be good to resolve this issue.
Let me know how I can help to get to the bottom of this.
