Im new to Zimbra and I have been searching for a solution for my problems here and on Google without luck.
I used to have a Dovecot / Postfix solution but exported it all to a first class open source edition Zimbra "zcs-5.0.4_GA_2101.DEBIAN4.0.20080321134307".
I works just fine. Except for one annoying thing.
Two users have got extreme amounts of mail.
Well, actually its not that "extreme" but they are heavy users of mail.
they have about 8000-15000 mails in their inbox.
No I understand that there must be a limit to what a mail system can handle but I dont feel that 8000 is to much (and yes, I might be totally wrong here).
Anyway. As soon as I enter the users inbox with Thunderbird (TB 2.x) it downloads all headers but when I try to open a mail it just hangs and all goes down... Zimbra stops responding on imap and the webservices also stop responding.
All I can do when this happens is to restart all zimbra services with zmmcontrol and start em up again...
The plan was to show this company the power of open source and they are about to buy the comercial version to be able to sync with their mobile phones etc... but right now the project hangs on one tiny annoying little thing
So any suggestions is appreciated!
