Could you elaborate on how you set it up to accept non-ssl on localhost only?

Thanks!

The best Maildir IMAP server
It just keeps getting better with every release, straightforward to set up and then you just let it run and forget about it. All servers should be this good.

Version 4 offers a significant speed boost over version 3 as well.

Netscape Fixed needed for POP3.

Should add a compile option at build for this problem with Netscape. Netscape clients (4.7 and such) using POP3 for login, STRIP "username@domain.com" to just "username" (Netscape strips off everything after the @ symbol). This breaks compatiblty with ISP's that have users setup using the full e-mail address for POP3, like in Outlook Express.

This can be annoying if you have a virtual database with courier and the login names are "username@domain.com". The solution has been to make the users in Netscape use "%" or ":", like "username%domain.com", or "username:domain.com" with a replace routine for the login to change "%", and/or ":" to "@", or adding "username%domain.com" to the database to fix this problem.

new mail notification
hi!

Does anyone of you know how to set up an imidietly mail notification to an IMAP client (in read in the RFC that the server has to send an "EXIST" to the client when the mailbox size changes - new mail is delivered)? I know that this normally is a a feature of IMAP servers but can't get it working with Courier-IMAP. In case of this isn't supported by Courier-IMAP do you know how to set it up with UW-IMAP and Maildir (I cou'dl get this either).

Thanks in advance

The easiest way would be to use the "maildirmake"

program that is part of the qmail distribution.

AFAIK, you should be able to compile just that

program without using any other part of qmail.

Yes. Works great. I run non-SSL on "localhost"

only, and SSL on the real IP address. I had to

make one change to

/usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/imapd-ssl.config. I

commented out the line that includes

imapd-ssl.config. Otherwise, the settings for the

secure server get used by the insecure one.

I subscribed to the mailing list and submitted

this change, but I got back a nasty message saying

that they wouldn't accept my email because they

claimed I was NOT subscribed.

Maildir setup?
Can someone send me an example of setting up the requisite directory structure in the user's directory in order to interact with Courier? That would be most helpful in getting this working. Thanks.

Re: Anyone done IMAP over ssl with Courier?
Courier has excellent support for SSL out of the box. It's very easy to enable this functionality, and it works great.

redhat 6.0 & berkeley db 3.0.55
had some trouble compiling with this combination, however since I wasn't using berkeley db I uninstalled it and used the gdm libraries. this worked then with all of the default settings.
