Default ISPConfig with squirrelmail

Great job guys been using ISPConfig for a while now just reacently I notice that I wasn't getting mail well I was but not regularly as other days and people starting asking me if I received e-mail from them so not sure whats going on because I do receive some email then I notice the size of my email account is 96 MB decided to start fresh and deleted and created my account in ISPConfig worked fine but now I get this error as soon as I log in using squirrelmail:

ERROR: Could not complete request.
Query: SELECT "INBOX"
Reason Given: SELECT failed: Can't open INBOX (file /var/spool/mail/fabiang): not in valid mailbox format


two questions
1) is there a limit on the size of mailboxes since I know of another account that has the same problem and the same size mailbox? Check the settings on ISPConfig and have -1 on mail size.
2) How can I fix the error so that I can view my messages using squirrelmail?



Thank you in advance for any help.

1) There is no such Limit. But mbox files generaly tend to get corrupted if they where accessed by several programs at the same time, e.g. squirrelmail and postfix. We generally recommend to use the maildir format as it is resistant agains corruption.

2) Can you read the file with a normal mailclient trough pop3 or imap?

1)if I enable maildir will it affect my current users that are working fine now.
2) I tried outlook and other webinterfaces, outlook keeps asking me for the password which was working fine until I encountered this problem and all the web interfaces give me invalid mailbox error. The only way I'm able to check my email is through webmin interface that I have install in the server.

Try this:
Within Outlook, enable SMTP-Authentication in your email client.
In outlook the checkbox to enable this is named "Server requires authentication".

If you want to use maildir, you will have to install a maildir capable pop3 and imap server like courier or dovecot first. This will affect of course all accounts on your server.

This error means that squirrelmail tried to allocate more then 67 MB of RAM. This is very unusual, either your email message is so large or the mailbox is corrupted in a way that squirrelmail fails to decode the message.

You can try to set the memory limit to a higher value in /root/ispconfig/php/php.ini and then restart the ispconfig server.
