    However you set up your server, it's in read only mode. Since you really haven't given us a whole lot of info, we can't really help further than that. Check your setup and mount your connections read-write.
  • gmlagara,

    Has this server been working fine for you and all of a sudden started to choke, or is this a new server you've never had working?

    It looks like something is mounted RO for some reason. What do your maillogs on the server say and what does the output of the mount command look like?

    Since you are referring to using outlook as the client and a Linux based server, the first question is if you have admin/root access to the mail server. If you have root access to the mail server you should check the mail log files in /var/log to determine all errors and which files and directories need to be modified to grant the mail user RW access. Once the files and directories have been found you can use the chmod and chown commands to modify the permissions as needed.
