courier imap configuration almost working
today, i wanted to install an email service on my local pc
while waiting for my server to be repaired. I then only
have to mimic my configuration and tune it.
The setup involves fetchmail (pop3), exim (smtp), procmail
to filter and courier-imap to access it.
Mail is fetched ok, forwarded okay by exim and procmail
splits it up. For testing purposes i only split up a few things:
kde mailing list, user mailing list and all other mails.
My maildir looks like this:
Maildir/kde (also with a cur new tmp in )
Maildir/user (also with a cur new tmp in )
1) First weird thing (at least for me but i could be standard) is that
the mails in kde and user are written as 1040076006.15184_0.lancelot
(lancelot is the hostname) and in the new directory as msgDke...
My procmail looks like this so maybe the problem (if there is any) lies
(i have not fully typed the Resent-Sender lines as i am not able to use
symbol for some reason in the mozilla mail program)
Exim is also configured to deliver in the Maildir format
I then installed courier-imap, made an account in mozilla mail and
imap and smtp to be found at localhost because that's where the services
are running ( exim and courier)
I then get the messages in an Inbox folder under benedict"at"lancelot
(sorry fot "at")
I can also email as benedict"at"lancelot which gets then rewritten to
my normal email specified in /etc/emailaddresses
But i cannot seem to access the mails in the kde and user folder
or do i have to create them IN the cur or kde folder?
(hopefully sending works :)
