I have just ended my migration from a Linux box to a cool OpenBSD box.
I am trying to get my mail back on line.
The sendamil part get going just fine but I can't get the UW-IMAP port to work properly
* first none of my Email client can get my mails form the imap4 service even if I can telnet
to him and do a nice hello. One of my client try to send a "login" command to the imap
daemon and I don't understand why. With Oulook express I can't get my mail properly
from the inbox folder under /var/mail/username. I suspect my own mind to not properly
grasp the relationship between IMAP folders, unix folders, the INBOX and the MBOX...
somebody to help it ? ;)
* Second I want my mail to be kept in a different place than the default user home
dir. I would like them to stay in the inbox marked as read or be stored in another
place under /var/.
I want this because I don't want the root mail to clobber the \ mount
point and I don't want users messing with the mail files under their home dir. Plus I
will find much more convenient to have all mails stored in one safe place at upgrade
* a procedure question : the uw-imap FAQ states that to stop the imap service to move
messages from the inbox to the user mbox it shall be rebuild with a small Makefile
To achieve that I have done :
a MAKE CLEAN,
then a MAKE EXTRACT ,
then I applied the modification,
then a MAKE BUILD and
then a MAKE REINSTALL
Is this the proper way ?
Thanks a lot.
