adding Maildir to the users account


How does one had the Maildir to the users account

I created the user account, but he or she doesn't have Maildir folder under thier account.

So when i try checking the mail the password box keeps poping up.

using postfix and courier

I came across this

my path is

[root@localhost]# find / -name maildirmake
/downloads/courier-imap-3.0.7/maildirmake
/downloads/courier-imap-3.0.7/maildir/maildirmake
/usr/lib/courier-imap/bin/maildirmake


Quote:
Example:
Create a Maildir folder for "user". A folder of this name must not exist.
/usr/lib/courier-imap/bin/maildirmake -S /home/user/Maildir
Create the "Notices" folder that is to be shared.
/usr/lib/courier-imap/bin/maildirmake -s write -f Notices /home/user/Maildir
Change owner and group if needed.
chown -R user_name.group_name /home/user/Maildir/.Notices
Change permissions for all to read and write.
chmod -R 2777 /home/user/Maildir
Add this to the file /usr/lib/courier-imap/etc/maildirshared so it appears for all users.
PublicFolders /home/user/Maildir/.Notices
Now you will have:
shared
-PublicFolders
-Notices
Is that the correct setup, do i have to be in the directory of user or directory courier-imap to run the command ?

what do they mean by Setup shared folders

That looks right - did it give you any error messages? If it couldn't create the directory, I would expect some sort of message about it. It works for me :S

I'm just trying to see if i could do it before hes come along and checks it, he has help me alot, thanks J

So i was wondering if thats the right way to do it, because i dont want to stuff it.

is there any thing else i should check, i know how to add extra mail for users so he or she can have more than one mail address

vi /etc/postfix/aliases then edit file

testaccount: username

then run

postalias /etc/postfix/aliases
