Qmail maildirsize not updating failed while updating boot sectors disk

The period, forward slash, and non US-ASCII Unicode characters are represented using the UTF-7 character set, and encoded with a modified form of base64-encoding.

Maildirs allow multiple concurrent access by different applications. Multiple applications can update a maildir at the same time, without stepping on each other's feet.

A maildir contains three sub-directories: tmp, new, and cur. These folders are logically nested, and periods serve to separate folder hierarchies. Sent.2002 is considered to be a subfolder called ``2002'' which is a subfolder of ``Sent''.

These three subdirectories comprise the primary folder, where new mail is delivered by the system. Each folder itself contains the same three subdirectories, tmp, new, and cur, and an additional zero-length file named maildirfolder, whose purpose is to inform any mail delivery agent that it's really delivering to a folder, and that the mail delivery agent should look in the parent directory for any maildir-related information. FOLDER NAME ENCODINGFolder names can contain any Unicode character, except for control characters.

In the event that the same process creates multiple messages, a suffix unique to each message is appended to the process id; preferrably an underscore, followed by an increasing counter.

This applies whether messages created by a process are all added to the same, or different, maildirs.
