    Re: Courier IMAP issues after Precise upgrade

    Same problem here. I dist-upgraded one server and it lasts about an hour or two.
    Did a fresh install on another server with 12.04 and it is also showing the problem after about 8 hours- unable to login.

    I tried:
    sudo apt-get purge gamin
    sudo apt-get install fam
    sudo apt-get install courier-pop-ssl courier-imap-ssl courier-ssl courier-pop courier-imap courier-base

    and so far it is working on one system but need to give it a day or two.

    Is an update available yet?

    Is this an apparmor, courier-imap, fam or gamin issue?

    Re: Courier IMAP issues after Precise upgrade

    I've been up now for over a day which is the longest since I upgraded so this looks good to me.

    Speedy I'd say this is probably a gamin issue as replacing gamin fixes the problem.

    I'm going to mark this as solved. Thanks for all your help guys!

    Re: Courier IMAP issues after Precise upgrade

    This is indeed a gam_server issue!!! My server just did it again.
    Code:
    sudo killall gam_server
    Then attempting to login again worked! Didn't even have to restart any of the services. I also noticed that restarting all of the mail services does NOT restart gam_server.

    So for everyone here that is replacing gam with fam and it doesn't work make sure you kill off gam_server manually or just restart your server.

    Seems this bug has been around for awhile.

    Re: Courier IMAP issues after Precise upgrade

    I've used there commands:

    sudo apt-get purge gamin
    sudo apt-get install fam
    sudo apt-get install courier-imap-ssl courier-ssl courier-imap courier-base

    And am running stable for 4 days now.

    But then again, Wladimir Mutel on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...6?comments=all, has 12293 files in his ~/Maildir/cur , and gets FAM timeouts, so watch out.

    Also gamin is said to be better than FAM.

    I only have 144 files in my /cur folder and was getting the timeouts with gamin. Almost 1 week now and no issues once I went to fam.

    Encountered this problem on a new 12.04 server after moving a configuration over from an old 8.04 server. Troubling and frustrating!

    Re: Courier IMAP issues after Precise upgrade

    Same issue here after upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 the courier and gamin worked perfectly on 11.04. I also use another program that relies on gamin and have had to do a workaround for that one as well.

    Installing fam got me up and running but now I get loads of:
    Code:
    imapd-ssl: pmap_getmaps.c: rpc problem: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection reset by peer
    imapd-ssl: last message repeated ....[number].... times
    in my mail.log and messages when picking up mail in Thunderbird complaining "Filesystem notification initialization failure -- contact your mail administrator (check for configuration errors with the FAM/Gamin library)". Though at least mail is being picked up.
