Re: how to customize mbox format in postfix?

Thanks for your quick reply.
My questions is:
I am currently running postfix+Maildir+courier-imap. Well, I can use
procmail to let user customize their mbox location. But it seems
courier-imap support Maildir only, which means mbox guys can't use imap
service correctly.  I am planing to install uw-imap and let it binding
other port, say 14300, to provide unix mbox format imap service. But it
is non-sense.
