What version of imapd are you running?

rpm -q imap

If it isn't the latest errata update, could you update to the latest one
and test it for the problem also?

If the problem persists, I will create a new imap rpm package for you to
test ASAP, which will become an errata for all releases likely.

Comment 3 Thais Smith 2001-05-16 16:23:24 UTC
executor$ rpm -q imap

I believe that's the latest, unless I'm rsyncing my updates from the wrong 

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-16 16:37:23 UTC
No, thats the right one for 7.0...  Can you try the imap-2000-9 package
from Seawolf and see if that fixes it?


Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-18 07:11:05 UTC
I just updated imap to version imap-2000c and it contains many fixes for
stuff like this.  The packages are available from:


Does this solve it for you?  I cant get imapd to crash myself anymore.
Please let me know ASAP, as I'll be releasing errata soon.
