Cannot figure out if there is a difference between renaming a troubling index.fld to index.bad or just removing the file. Have been removing files and immediately after server startup it starts to rebuild it and everything seems to be perfectly in order.
Would be great to get the facts here.

Thanks!

If I remember correctly, renaming the index.fld allows the mailserver to rebuild the index and keep flags and the like if your users are in the habit of marking email. I'm certain there are other better reasons too, but I can't remember them off the top of my head.

Thanks!

Can Kerio confirm this, maybe?

The index.fld file should be always renamed, not deleted. But this action should be advised by technical support only. Doing it on your own you can end up with a messed data.

Ok. thanks.
Though we ever had any problems what so ever after deleting the files, now we can at least do it as it should be done
