Centos 5.2 + Plesk 10.3 + Imap + Qmail *updated
One of my e-mail accounts contains historical messages dating back to 2006. The account uses a total of about 9GB of space in 40,000 individual messages.
I use Windows Live Mail 2011 and RoundCube as a client. I have double-checked that all prune and cleaning Trash options are disabled.
When moving data from another server, I copied all 9gb of email to the IMAP/Trash folder. Everything was fine at the client, but only for couple of days. After several days, I entered the Trash folder and saw only only about 127 recent emails. The rest of my emails are gone! I even looked at the shell while logged in as root, and the files were deleted.
It just happend for the 3rd time! Good thing I backed up all my trash e-mails before.
Other email accounts seem OK, but they don't have as many messages in the folder. Maybe that is the problem?
What the heck, anyone got any idea?
