mbox imports with no errors by itself, has errors when imported after other mbox files

0 votes

Using epadd4.0 on windows, I don't if I am just overloading epadd or if it's sometimes overlooking errors. I have about 70GB in around 4000 mbox files converted from 46 psts using Aid4mail. Each of the 46 groups will import fine by itself, but after importing several one will invariably throw the error " WARN - Error page reached. code:null message:null type: null" . These same folders of mboxs will not throw this error if I start a new appraisal folder and load those alone.

I have 16G of ram and plenty of physical memory. I'm running from the standalone jar to up the amount of memory that java can use. Any advice is appreciated.

How many messages do you have for all 4000 mbox files?
