Maildir files getting mangled

2007-01-08 22:12:40
G'day, I've got a problem where my email files in users Maildirs get
messed up. The very top of the file has a few 0x00s, then the bottom of a
different email, then the real email. Obviously the headers are messed up
(not at the top of the file) so email clients don't read the email

This is only happening to users root Maildir folder (Inbox). It only
happens to a few emails, not all. I use procmail to direct emails to
different maildir folders - it's never happened to a different folder that
procmail has directed mail to.

The Maildirs are on a nfs mount (ext3). I use fetchmail -> exim ->
procmail -> courier. Am I right in thinking it's procmail that is actually
writing the maildir files?

So I'm not sure if procmail or something else is to blame here - but I
don't know where else to look (exim guys reckon it's a probably a procmail
