Dear All,

I use postfix and dovecot (1.1.11) combo with maildir format.
I would have a question about dovecot config.

Can I confiugre dovecot to download mails from IMAP folders via POP3?

Now, mails can be downloaded only from .INBOX.

Why?  The whole point of IMAP is to *not* store emails locally.

Anyway, have you googled "dovecot pop3" or read the documentation at http://wiki.dovecot.org/ ?

My dovecot.conf file:

mail_location = maildir:/home/vmail/%d/%n/Maildir
namespace private {
separator = .
prefix = INBOX.
#location = mail_location = maildir:/home/vmail/%d/%n/Maildir

inbox = yes
#hidden = yes
mail_privileged_group = mail

Dissent is patriotic, remember?
