Tiger 10.4 Server Mail issue

I am showing a "critical database error" in my Mail log of the server. I have tried a lot of things (i.e. reconstruct & rebuild) but with no luck. Add to this a Degrading RAID drive and it all adds up to having a great day!

Anyone have any tips for me or is it a reinstall of the server software I am looking at?

There can be a couple of reasons for this problem. I update an apple script for fixing a couple of problems with mail. Maybe you are lucky (be have a backup available).

su
mv /var/imap /var/imap.old
mkdir /var/imap
/usr/bin/cyrus/tools/mkimap
chown -R cyrusimap:mail /var/imap
chown -R cyrusimap:mail /var/spool/imap
sudo -u cyrusimap /usr/bin/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -i
sudo -u cyrusimap /usr/bin/cyrus/bin/cyrus-quota -f

(if you are not logged in as superuser (su), please paste the commands twice).


Gooed luck, Kees
