I wrote a JSP Web Mail application that is hosted on Apache 1.3.14 and Tomcat 3.21. The server is RH 7.1 Linux. I am using JavaMail API to handle the email part of the system with IMAP server running with Postfix.

After sometime I notice, using netstat -a, that there are so many imap socks waiting in the close_wait state.
If I shut down Tomcat and start it again the socks go away. What is the problem here?
Is there a solution? I hate to keep restarting the server, especially it is a production web server.

I would send this question to the JavaMail mailing list. It sounds like something that the engineers behind the API would be able to answer pretty easily. Of course, you could just be leaving the connections open....
