Hi experts,

I have a server linux FC6 and I have a little problem. After my clients have checked for the mail with thier clients and downloadede on their computer , mail on the server sometimes does not gets deleted, and the next time they findi it again. I made sure that under the properties of outlook account, the check Leave messages on sever is uncheck, but still every once in a while mails do net get deleted and they appear again on the next session.

What could be the cause of this?

    Try to check what happens when your users are disconnecting from your server. Do they close mail client or shutdown system at all? In second case, it is possible that mail client won't send 'dele' commands (POP3) or won't cleanup messages marked for deletion (IMAP4).

    You can use tcpdump/wireshark to capture IMAP4/POP3 communication from client to your server to determine if sessions are correct and your server is buggy or something bad happens to client machine or connection and server just don't get information that messages should be deleted.
