Pop3/Imap servers


I've pretty much finished with postfix. I've got it up and running, receiving and sending emails with ease.

Now it's time for me to get the pop3/imap factor in here.

What are some good pop3/imap servers that I should look into?

Cheers

assuming you're using maildirs then dovecot works very well without much trouble. others i've tried like courier and cyrus gave me a lot mroe headaches.

I would also recommend Dovecot

Have been using it for almost two years now

Very easy to setup and has not caused me any trouble so far

I third Dovecot, it's nice and easy to use and quite robust. I know of ISPs that have used it for several years without any issues.

I think I use MBox. It's probably not the greatest idea..

I don't know how to switch though.

I have looked at Dovecot, so I guess I'll go with that.

Thanks guys
