    Checking mail doesn't work!

    Without any changes to my server I can't check my E-Mail anymore (from 1 account only). I get this returned:

    The server returned the following error

    [SYS/PERM] Unable to process From lines (envelopes) in /var/spool/mail/adriaan; change recognition mode or check for corrupted mail drop..

    How can I fix this and how did this happend?

    SSH into the server, su to root and remove /var/spool/mail/adriaan . Warning: You will lose all email for that user but it will fix the problem.

    It would, but it's a little drastic. It's quite possible that the error is with the first email within the file, so you could simply edit the file and remove the first email in it, exit with saving and try again.
