Hello developers!

I found what led to this message:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to
allocate 10412 bytes)
in /usr/share/roundcube-webmail/program/lib/imap.inc on line 1390

I have to much mails stored in my inbox (currently abaut 2620).

In the PHP.ini is a limit for memory usage. So that per default each
script is not allowed to use more than 8 MB of RAM.

I just reached the limit. After getting another view mails, RoundCube
worked no more. I got no HTML output after logging in.

For now I solved the problem by setting the memory limit to 16MB.

But there have to be some significant changes in RoundCube to reduce
memory usage with large mail boxes.

Yours faithfully
