Hello

After more the one successfully installation I found some problems in
the actualy ports (from yesterday):

- while building websieve make wants download every time the old apache port

Makefile
*********
[snip]

RUN_DEPENDS=    ${SITE_PERL}/IMAP/Admin.pm:${PORTSDIR}/mail/p5-IMAP-Admin \
                ${SITE_PERL}/IMAP/Sieve.pm:${PORTSDIR}/mail/p5-IMAP-Sieve
.endif
## RUN_DEPENDS+=        ${LOCALBASE}/www/cgi-bin:${PORTSDIR}/${APACHE_PORT}

PKGMESSAGE=     ${WRKDIR}/pkg-message

[snip]

I alway commented out "RUN_DEPENDS..."


- ... also while building make would copy websieve.pl to
/usr/local/www/cgi-bin but it create a file called cgi-bin in
/usr/local/www


- websieve.pl:

[snip]

#creates global variables $mode, at rules, at mailboxes, at quota and %vacation;
# get quota
        @quota=&getquota("INBOX") if ($havequota || !$useprocmail);
        if ($IMAPERROR = /no errors/i && !$ismanager && $IMAPERROR) {
                $error=$IMAPERROR;
                &closeimap;
                &closesieve;
                &incorrect_login;
                exit;
        }

[snip]


In the port there is  here ("if ($IMAPERROR =~ /no..." ) a tile sign
but for successfully login you have to remove this.

Here you have to edit in /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/IMAP
the file Sieve.pm:

Old:
$encode=encode_base64($userpass);

New:
$encode=encode_base64($userpass, '');

- If you change the location from /var/imap  to another location (f.e.
to /usr/imap
 because you need more disk space), you'll get the following message
in /var/log/messages:

Sep  7 16:05:25 acsvfbsd04 imap[656]: login: acsvfbsd04 [192.168.10.6]
martin plaintext User logged in
Sep  7 16:05:25 acsvfbsd04 sieve[682]: IOERROR: creating directory
/var/imap: Permission denied
Sep  7 16:05:25 acsvfbsd04 sieve[682]: mkdir /var/imap: Permission denied
Sep  7 16:05:25 acsvfbsd04 sieve[682]: error in actions_setuser()

Websieve wants to creat some file in /var/imap everytime you log in. I
create an symlink like this:

lrwxr-xr-x   1 cyrus   cyrus       18  7 Sep 16:23 imap -> /usr/imap/var/imap

Afterwoods I works like a charme.

Martin
