Lost mailbox

I have alphasetver DS10 with True64UNIX V5.1A.
I was keaping messages from cron in the mailbox and I never delete them from there. At once was entire mailbox empty. What was happen ? Is there some size limit to mailbox ?

Thanks.

Re: Lost mailbox

I think that somebody deleted the messages or you read the messages but do not deleted.

You can access old readed messages by using mailx -f (the mbox file).

Re: Lost mailbox

Hi,

mail has problem working with 1024+ entries but that should not lead to the deletion.
Is there any mail file for that user in:
/var/spool/mail
?

greetings,

Michael
