-ERR POP EOF or IO Error on a users login
A user reported that they couldn't download mail, and looking at the maillog I saw the following errors:
Looking at the mail spool in mutt I cold see that there were 907 messages at 43 MegaBytes.
I know that this particular user used both a desktop and a BlackBerry to retrieve email and that BlackBerries had problems with more than 700 messages and larger mail files. So I decided to trim the spool down.
To do so in mutt I selected all read messages via the limit command.
Following the trim, the user was able to download mail again.
