I'm not sure whats going on, but was hoping someone would be able to help me out.
I'm running the default IMAP server that comes with RedHat8.0. Every once in a while one of my users will begin to have problems with their email. I will check the server and the CPU cycles are almost always pegged at 100%. I check the running processes and that particular user will have several imapd processes. I'll close their client(OutlookXP) and shutdown the running processes. This is where my problem lies, I can kill all of the processes except for one, and this is the process that is consuming all of the CPU cycles and preventing the user from using their email. I checked the users mail spool and their is a *.loc file also in their . The only way that I have been able to fix this is by restarting the server.
Can anyone help me out on this one?
