At work we have just installed a server with:
courier-imap
squirrelmail
qmail

It seems to be working well and once we have an LDAP authentication server running we can put it live

EDIT: You don;t need LDAP but we want to use it for other things anyway.

Just extract them like tar files:
tar -xjf filename.bz2

The "j" puts the file through bzip2.

I would go back and run it as root.

Sorry - I can't remember the exact paths of the top of my head. try:
find / -name courier-imap | less

To compile and install the Courier-IMAP server (this is the short version, a longer version follows):


$ ./configure [ options, see below ]
$ make
$ make check # Note - the --enable-workarounds-for-imap-client-bugs
# option to configure will result in make check FAILING.
$ su root
# make install # Or, make install-strip, to strip the executables.
# make install-configure # Install configuration files.

# Start the authdaemond process

NOTE

You MUST run the configure script as normal user, not root. Did you extract the tarball as root? It won't work. Remove the extracted source code. Log in as a normal user. Extract the source code as a normal user, then run configure. You will do everything as a normal user, except for the final step of installing the compiled software.
You run the last 2 as root only configure, make and make check are run as a normal user.

I think the only difference is that install-strip doesn't display debugging info.
