All tags in Mailscanner that have the {***} brackets around them

I did not dig too deep except for dumping and e-mail to each exchange server that had the tags and then connecting via IMAP and not being able to pull the e-mails until I removed the 1 with the tag.

Was it the same on all different exchange versions, or was it specific to some? M$ has put in some rather stupid limitations in some versions (if not all:-) ... Like the 32KiB rule space/user... So this isn't surprising:-D
Thanks for sharing... ISTR this being discussed before, with some alternatives for fixing, so a search of the list archives might be in order.

Here is a good one that I thought I would pass on to everyone.  3 Different servers and domains 1 exchange 2003, 1 exchange 2007 and 1 exchange 2010.  All set to allow IMAP, with MailScanner on the front of them.

IMAP would just start to hang and not retrieve any messages and no matter what you did it would not pull the messages after some time I noticed that when I cleaned out my inbox it would work for that folder but not the deleted items etc. etc.  SO long story short and a bunch of testing. It seems that IMAP does not like {} brackets.  I removed the {}brackets from all of the tags is Mailscanner.conf on all 3 Mailscanner box's and have not had a problem for the last week.

Thank you.
