dovecot -n output again?

More than likely to do with NFS locking, since this is known to be 
finicky (I understand you can get it to work, but you have to get the 
locking set just right). I don't use NFS so won't be much more help 
than this - search the list (or google) on dovecot+NFS+lock...

good luck!


Best regards,
