Hi,

I had a problem with a client of ours yesterday where there mailserver (Kerio Connect 7.3.0) shutdown.

Investigating further revealed that the mailstore had reached capacity at 1.1TB - their mail is only around 48GB.

I checked the folder sizes under the mailstore folder and found that one user had a huge number of 2.6GB files generated with the same date/time stamp a few days ago. Then yesterday it started again which put the server over the storage edge.

Deleting the files sorted the server out and today it is still fine.

These files seem to be bogus - can anyone shed some wisdom on this matter as to what might have caused something like this?

Has anyone else had this issue?

Many thanks,

Gary

Gary,

We had the exact same thing happen to us about a year ago, we deleted the files and the problem has not recurred. Smells like a bug to me.

We are running Kerio on Debian 5.0, how about you?

We are running on Win server 2008 R2. Maybe it was a once off KOFF Connector issue with Outlook. I also do not know if this user maybe tried to send a large file by accident maybe causing the issue.

Just though it might be a known bug but it seems to be one of those odd and mysterious IT issues that come and go out of the blue with no trace.

It is still fine, as you said, deleted and never happened again. Weird!
