Re: Cucipop
Oops!

Here's the magic incantation you're probably looking for in order to fix the problem with duplicate messages not getting deleted:

chown root:mail /var/mail
chmod go+w /var/mail
chmod 750 /var/mail

Hurray, problem fixed. :)

Uh, be more specific. I've run this:

chown go-w /var/mail
chown root:mail /var/mail
chmod 755 /var/mail

Now, according to what you've just told me, that should have worked, right?

cucipop not locking mail
cucipop appears to violate RFC1939 in that it allows
more than one connection to a mailbox
simultaneously.
I say 'appears to violate' because I've tried a couple
of different ISPs using cucipop and they both had this
behaviour. It may be a configuration option.
My tests indicated that (a) a second connection to a
mailbox will succeed when the first one is still active
(ie before it has issued a quit); and that (b) if you
have more than one connection active at the same
time then if both connections are deleting email
independently then the first connection to quit will
have its deletions accepted and the second
connection will have its deletions ignored.
Is there a way to write a pop client so that multiple
connections can safely access the same mailbox?

Since 26 -r-xr-sr-x 1 bin mail 26368 13 âåð 21:11 /usr/local/libexec/cucipop
/var/mail should writable by group mail, which has GID 6.

This sentence should have read: "from procmail which is also available under the GPL".

Which is entirely correct and in no way violates the GPL considering the fact that the author of cucipop happens to be the author of procmail as well, and is therefore permitted to rerelease any part of the procmail sources under any license he sees fit.

If you telnet to port 110 of cuci.nl, you'll find
that they are using v2.00 of cucipop...

The author says that he's going to release it soon
but it might help if you sent mail to srb@cuci.nl
to register your interest!

1.31 is the last ?
Hey! I like cucipop very much, i don't have any problems with it (it works with 400 big accounts VERY FAST), but why developing of it stops ? It realy can't be better ?

Cucipop
This is one of the best pop3 servers I have found. One error that I have run into, and have not found the solution to yet is this:

Err Locking [user]'s mailbox.

When this happens the user is able to pop off their e-mail, but the e-mail that is downloaded stays on the server. Even my webmail program has the problem. Has anyone else run into this problem or found a solution to it?
