Qmail maildirsize not updating
I have tried many ways to recalculate that file, according to recommendations found elsewhere, but the file always comes back with the same values as if it is being duplicated from another source (perhaps the Inter Worx SQL database).
How can I accurately and permanently recalculate it?
The period, forward slash, and non US-ASCII Unicode characters are represented using the UTF-7 character set, and encoded with a modified form of base64-encoding.
The “&” character starts the modified base64-encoded sequence; the sequence is terminated by the “-” character.
Folders are additional subdirectories in the maildir whose names begin with a period: such as . US-ASCII characters, U 0x0020 - U 0x007F, except for the period, forward-slash, and ampersand characters (U 0x002E, U 0x002F, and U 0x0026) represent themselves.
The ampersand is represent by the two character sequence “&-”.
The sequence of 16-bit Unicode characters is written in big-endian order, and encoded using the base64-encoding method described in section 5.2 of RFC 1521, with the following modifications: · The “=” padding character is omitted.
When decoding, an incomplete 16-bit character is discarded.
Maildirs allow multiple concurrent access by different applications. Multiple applications can update a maildir at the same time, without stepping on each other´s feet.
A “Maildir” is a structured directory that holds E-mail messages.
Maildirs were first implemented by the Qmail mail server.
This document describes the Courier mail server´s extended maildirs, without explicitly identifying The Courier mail server-specific extensions.
See maildir(5) in Qmail´s documentation for the original definition of maildirs.
