i ran dovecot for a while on my rh9 server, and it would crash from time
to time when i accessed my imap folders with kmail. ever since i
switched to courier-imap (on mandrake) it has been flawless.
however, i have a client whom i recently (well, eight months ago) set up
with makdrake, courier, and squirrelmail. during the initial
migration, one of the users had a couple of large mailboxes (thousands
of messages) that would cause squirrelmail to return an out of memory
error, even though they worked fine with a standard imap client. my
guess is that squirrelmail is trying to sort all of the messages by
name or date or whatever, and hitting a memory wall with apache or php.
not being a web guru, that's the best diagnosis i could come up with,
and it sounds like what your friend is experiencing too.
