Trying to backup mail stores so I can migrate from 10.4 server to 10.6 server.


mailbfr -b is failing with the following errors.


rsync: readdir("/var/spool/imap/."): Input/output error (5)

rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at /SourceCache/rsync/rsync-35.2/rsync/main.c(992) [sender=2.6.9]


store and database are set to default in server admin which is /var/imap and /var/spool/imap.


Mail service is up and running and all clients are getting mail.  When I go into /var/spool/imap to manually copy the store out its empty.


Where is the mail store? Where is all this mail going??
