ERROR: Could not complete request.
Reason Given: Internal error occured. Refer to server log for more information. [2016-02-21 13:25:45]


Solution :

  • Was checking the /var/log/maillog and got the following information –>  [Feb 24 16:05:18 griffin imap(appts.XXX): File isn’t in mbox format: /var/mail/appts.XXX]
  • Then open the file with any text editor like vi /var/mail/appts.XXX
    then Delete the garbage lines(one or two) at the beginning and save the file.

    Restart the service and everything shloud be OK now.
