We are now happilly running tpop3d with some minor monifications.
But there is one thing I noted:

Feb  8 10:21:24 mx2 tpop3d[28118]:
mailspool_load_index(/mailspool/390/016390.tpop3d-index): index
exists, but has some stale or corrupt data

The mailbox itself is empty.

cat /mailspool/390/016390.tpop3d-index
# This is a mailspool index file, generated by tpop3d, version 1.5.3.
# Its purpose is to speed up the parsing of mailspool files by the POP3
# server. If you delete this file, it will be automatically recreated by
# tpop3d. So don't do that.

If a user does empty his mailbox, there is always one message
left behind in .tpop3d-index. Shouldn't a zero bytes mailbox
produce just e empty mailspool index file ?
