on my server is installed Courier Mail Server. It happens that one imapd process uses tons of the system resources blocking the entire server. I would like to track down the user (i.e. the mail address in Courier Mail) that is running that process. Please note: not the linux user, but the mail address. Is it possibile to infer the email address of a process given the PID of a imapd command process?

Thank you,


In my installation I solved with top -c

One example output is, on the command column:

/usr/bin/imapd /usr/home/user/vmail/domain/**mail_address**/mail/
