Why Does My Imap Client Show Lesser Mail Messages Than The Number of Message Files ? (Doc ID 1459504.1)

Last updated on MAY 11, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 6.2.0 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?
