Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAILBOX-111) Better handling of corrupted uidlist file
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2011 08:37:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAILBOX-111?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13070364#comment-13070364

Eric Charles commented on MAILBOX-111:

I also encountered corruption and removed it by hand.
That file was also sometimes corrupted when I was using qmail.

- Do you think the entries after the skipped one will be valid? (I didn't took time to examine
what was wrong in the corrupted file, I simply removed it)

- Any idea on the cause of the corruption?

> At the moment we throw an exception if an corrupted entry was found in the uidfile of
the mailbox. So someone needs to update the file by hand to get the mailbox working again.
It would be better to just log that we found an corrupted entry and skip it. So it would be
kind of self healing
