Sendmail + Courier IMAP on Slackware 10


Hi! Good day.

I've been looking for a good documentation on configuring Sendmail + Courier IMAP (with MailDir) but I can't find one. My server's specs:

Slackware 10, Sendmail (latest version) and Procmail (version comes with in slackware 10 in CD).

Currently, I'm using the IMAP and POP server distributed with Slackware 10. I want to switch to Courier IMAP and make use of their MailDir feature and MySQL auth, but I can't find a good tutorial or howto. I believe you can help me with this one.

Thanks and more power

best regards

james

I use postfix as it's much easier to configure and secure than sendmail, so I wouldn't be able to steer you right with Sendmail ;(

Hi!

I installed courier-imap package tgz from linuxpackages.net. I started the daemon via /etc/rc.d/rc.courier-imap start and its running fine.

But when I try to login on SquirrelMail Page, I got

"ERROR : Connection dropped by imap-server."

When I try KMail Client and email to some user, I didn't get any message.

What how can i figure out this problem to solve?

best regards

james
