Re: cyrus-imap + postfix + procmail = trouble

There are many very good howto on using the Cyrus, Postfix
setup. However, you seem to know Exim why go to Postfix ?

You can find the how-to link from the http://www.postfix.org.

If you like Exim, maybe Exim with the maildir format and Courier IMAP would
take less time for you. I use Postfix, but Exim is also good, if you
understand it better. I setup Exim for a friend who wanted to use IMAP.
You only need to chage one or two lines in
the Exim Config file. Since I know Courier and Squirrelmail, I installed
them. It is very simple to setup Courier IMAP with Exim if you use it with a local 
/etc/passwd and local /etc/shadow file.

Of course, this type of setup can be a little
dangerous if you don't follow the Debian Security howto. 


If you do choose to do this make sure the clients are forced to use
encryption, otherwise you will have unwelcomed guests.

My friend did not follow the Debian howto, so you can only guess what
happened. ;-)
