Did you delete the message files (ie m_00001.mes, etc)?

Ok, I tried deleting messages but all that happened was they were reinstituted
as current...didn't solve the problem , just changed it. Deleting didn't seem to
be the answer, so I just deleted the whole mail folder. Then I upped the
max messages to 30,000 as Mike suggested and it's working.
Since it will take a long time to reach 30,000 messages I have put the problem
off for a while, but apparently there is something wrong in the program itself
when it comes to housekeeping when the maximum number of messages is
reached. Unless that is corrected, I'll just have to delete the mail folder each
time I get there.
Thanks everyone for the help...onward and upward.

The software is trying to renumber all massages starting from 1, as you have reached the max message number configured in the housekeeping setup. There is a message file with number 1 in the BPQMailchat/Mail folder, so it can’t rename the file. Files can sometimes get left there, even when the message directory entry has been deleted. There may be other stray message iles about, so delete any with numbers below the lowest number currently in use on the BBS.

My mailbox isn't working right. When housekeeping,
I get an error message that says:
"could not rename message no XXXXX to 1, quitting"
I have taken down the program and downloaded a clean
latest version and reinstalled it...no change.
Everything else seems to be working OK, just the
housekeeping cycle has something wrong. I am using
Windows VISTA Home Premium.
Anybody got any ideas?
