Why Does My Imap Client Show Lesser Mail Messages Than The Number of Message Files ?

(Doc ID 1459504.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 15, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 6.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
User accessing mailbox with both IMAP and POP mail clients.


A Messaging Server 6.2 user doesn't see all messages they expected in the mailbox.

The commans imcheck shows fewer files in the mailbox than what's visible with ls -al <message path> :

imcheck -m shows only 4 messages exist in the mailbox. 

Why aren't messages 11136 until 11144 in the imcheck -m output?
