Imapd processes

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?
