PostPosted: Mon 11 Feb 2013, 08:39    Post subject:  Seamonkey email problem  

Dear all,

I am seeing a strange behavior of seamonkey email program.

In my seamonkey, i have setup one account. Apart from this there is a local folder.
I have set disk path for both these items to a mounted partition.
I mean, whenever mail will be downloaded from my account, it will goto /mnt/sda5/my_mail.
Local folder also set to /mnt/sda5/local.

Before opening my seamonkey, I have to mount sda5. Then everything goes fine.

When I forget to mount sda5, and open seamonkey, it opens well. But
1. I am not able to see some of the subfolders of mail account as well as local folder.
2. When mail gets downloaded, it gets stored in some secrete place.

Case 1 is partly understood.
But couldn't understand the 2nd case! Where the downloaded mails are put? I am not seeing those mails, when I close seamonkey, mounts sda5, and reopens seamonkey!

How to recover those mails?

Again I am able to see those mails, when I open seamonkey sda5 unmounted!

Please help.

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Many thanks to Semme who helped me tracking the problem.

After all, I tracked the file, where the mails goes. It is very surprising!

They goto
/initrd/pup_rw/mnt/sda5/mymail/Inbox
/initrd/pup_rw/mnt/sda5/mymail/Inbox.msf

Sad

Looks like /initrd/pup_rw/mnt/sda5/mymail/ folder is the ghost folder for my true /mnt/sda5/mymail!

My actual directory is
/mnt/sda5/mymail
which is unmounted in this case.

But there exist another directory
/initrd/pup_rw/mnt/sda5/mymail/
which is surprisingly looking similar to my actual directory and when actual directory is unmounted, it holds my downloaded mails!

When I mount my actual directory, the content of this ghost directory gets hidden!

How to deal with these ghost folders?
