In trying to backup my t'bird installation (which I have done without errors plenty of times with FC4) I'm getting the following error. Always on the same mbox file:

tar: /home/cajun/mail: file changed as we read it


I have even went as far as to stop Dovecot when trying to backup my t'bird. Of course, t'bird is not running at the time. Anyone have any clues as to what might be happening?

Do an 'ls -l /home/cajun/mail' before and after the tar run to
see if tar is correct.  Does new mail deliver directly to this
mailbox?

Ok, will try this Les. Thanks. Yes, mail delivers directly to this mailbox.
