Default Can't download or delete mails from account

I have a email account which did work fine till yesterday.
Now I have to problem, that I can't download any mails with Thunderbird. It says that it is connecting with the server and then looking for new mails but then it just stops without doing anything.

When using roundcubemail I see all the new mails that are correctly written into the mailbos but if I try to delete them they disapere from the screen but only until I refresh again. They don't go to the recycle bin.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

The odd thing is that other emails from the same web work just fine and that this email did work as well till recently.

I found this within the maillog:
Quote:

Could that be the problem?

Yes, this seems to be the problem.

Please try this:

Code:
/etc/init.d/xinetd stop
(wait a minute until to let your users finish the mail download)

Code:
killall ipop3d
/etc/init.d/xinetd start
This assumes that your ipop3d is running trough xinetd.

Unfortunately that didn't work.

I stoped xinetd, waited a few minutes and then wanted to kill all ipop3d
What I get is
Quote:
ipop3d: no process killed
After starting xinetd I get this in the maillog

I solved the problem.

I had to delete /tmp/.90d8.32763e5, which had the process number in it.

Thanks for your time and hints people!
