Hi all, after testing some more the various mail systems I would like to share what I figured out so far: Courier: Pros: That's what we use currently. Cons: Does not work currently out of the box with neither lwat in lenny nor gosa in squeeze. No extra GOsa integration (but might not be needed). It looks as if it does not allow kerberos authentication with gssapi or anything else- a big disadvantage in my opinion as we should use our kerberos single sign on system. Cyrus: Pros: Kerberos authentication with service ticket works (gssapi, tested). GOsa integration (needed?) Cons: Why is cyrus 2.3 not in squeeze? Package dying? No unix-style mailbox. I looked now for alternatives which allow Kerberos authentication, easy configuration and active upstream/packageing and found: dovecot: http://www.dovecot.org/From a first look it looks quite nice, and I will give it a try now.Does anybody know more? Any comments, ideas or other valuable input?
Dovecot is my personal favorite. Use it on all networks I maintain! Pros: supports multiple storage formats, including Maildir and mbox supports multiple quota formats, including Linux filesystem quota includes LDA for tight Postfix→Maildir→imap integration supports sieve is policy compliant (unlike Courier!) Cons: None that I know of... - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
