First off, please don't screw up the threading.

From start to finish this is the BEST linux I've seen. Ok, now to my question. I can't seem to find anywhere in the docs how to change uw-imapd to deliver to ~/Maildir. It's delivering mail just fine at this point to ~/mbox, but I'm accessing my mail from multiple clients, and if I leave a client open, I get mailbox locking problems. Thanks in advance for the help. -Shane
As far as your problem, this is what I found in the documentation: From /usr/share/doc/uw-imapd-ssl/README.Debian.gz: 5. mbox driverThis package has the mbox driver enabled which means that if there is a file in
your $HOME directory called mbox it will be treated as your inbox and all mail in your system inbox (/var/mail/<your login>) will immediately be transfered there on access.My guess is that the mere existence of ~/mbox causes uw-imap to use it. If you remove the mbox file, it won't use it anymore. I run uw-imap for my users in a lab at school and all mail ends up in ~/mail/. That appears to be the default for uw-imap.
Hope this helps, -Roberto
