Question How to remove IMAP?


Anyone know how to remove Courier-IMAP from RH7.3 Linux? By installing it, it has messed up my mail system.

Since I installed IMAP, I can't receive messages from outside world on Postfix, but I can send messages to outside world.

Anyone know why this might be happeneing?

thanks,

Vince

How did you install it? Was it on there from the initial install? If so, fire up kpackage and find the package click on the icon to remove it and presto! It's gone. Via command line:
rpm -qa | grep imap
And when it returns the package name:
rpm -e imap

Cool

Thanks for the reply MasteC,

IMAP-Courier was installed from tar ball, using ./configure.

Do you know how to uninstall it from a source install?

thanks,

Vince

Yes, but it depends on whether or not the author of the package included the option in the Makefile. Change to the tarball directory that was created after your untarred the imap server, something like:
cd /home/packages/imap-courier
Then run:
make uninstall

If they did not include that, you have a few options:
1. make install again, this time noting where packages are getting installed to, and remove each one by hand;
2. Download a program called chkinstall that will run make install for you and note where things are getting installed to, and then you can optionally remove then with that tool (the better idea);
3. Run a "find" or "locate" on your box for imap and remove the files that it returns (bad idea);
4. (The worst idea) Reinstall your distro...

Cool
