I recently upgraded an wu-imap server to dovecot dovecot-0.99.11-1.FC3.3 
without big trouble (the subscribed mailboxes had to be added by hand...)

But today users told me that there where some problems; e.g. a user 
tried to delete a message and got this error:

Oct 19 09:43:13 mail imap(jmeinken): File isn't in mbox format: 

This didn't happen before; also after the migration.

My questions:
- Whats wrong?
- Why is there the "//"

a "more Trash" failed. After deleting this file and "touching" a new 
one, the user can delete files.

The quota is 150 MB, the usere uses 100 MB at the moment.

Any ideas?
