13 I'd suspect UID/GID mismatches somewhere. Make sure the machine
14 delivering the email, the home dirs, and the machine running
15 courier-imap all see .maildir as the same user account. You may want to
16 put Courier-imap into verbose or debug mode as well.
17 I'd also look at your NFS config to see if you're doing any squashes
18 into other UIDs. And just for the hell of it, never use mbox over NFS.
19 The locking will kill you on a busy system.
