Hi, when trying to get the mail system working out of the box with debian-edu and gosa, I got the following idea: What about using the home directories (~/Maildir) as mail directories instead of /var/mail/foobar? This would have one advantage: There is only on location where the user's data is stored and if a user is removed, all his mails will also be cleared. Are there any disadvantages?
If using quota and hitting the roof, or if (arrgh!) /home is full, mails are rejected instead of just unavailable to the user until space have been freed.
Despite that I very much favor such setup! - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
