Thunderbird for local mail (movemail) in Fedora 10
I'm trying to set up Thunderbird to read from my local mail spool in Fedora 10, and can't figure out how to do it!
This is a fresh install of Fedora 10, added RPMfusion, yum update, then yum install thunderbird. I have not implemented the workaround for the DNS bug, but I think that is completely unrelated to this issue.
I've set up sendmail, working fine. Mail is piling up in /var/spool/mail/[user]. I see it in mutt.
I had this working fine before the upgrade, using the movemail option in the account setup wizard. Now I don't see that option.
I've searched the boards, zillions of posts suggest using "Unix mailspool"/movemail. Yup, that's exactly what I'm trying to do. But that option doesn't appear!!! I know the spool is readable. I've read the howto and the faq, same answer. About:config shows mail.use_builtin_movemail is set to true (default).
Other suggestions are to setup a local POP or IMAP server, but that seems crazy and cumbersome. (not difficult, just a poor solution). The messages are already right here on my hard drive... I just need to get Thunderbird to read them!!!
Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 (20081119)
This really shouldn't be this hard. Am I missing something???
