I have to admit that, despite many years of experience using FreeBSD, I
am completely lost. I've looked for all the how-to documents, and
general documentation I can, and I don't find it a whole lot of help.
Here's what I've got going, and what I hope to achieve.
First off, I have a running sendmail server with qpopper. Sendmail is
configured for authentication, and it all uses the system user/pass
database. I don't currently have SSL/TLS installed, but I've done it
before, and it's not a huge concern right now.
What I need is a slightly different setup for my users. As I mentioned
in an earlier email, I want to install an IMAP server. From what I've
gleaned from various sources, I need to change from mbox format to
maildir. Is this correct? Also, I've come to the understanding that
IMAP uses a totally different internal MTA, and thus a different user
Can someone point me in the right direction? I've kinda got
courier-imap installed from ports, but I can't log in. First off, how
can I configure courier-imap to use the system accounts? If I can get
this, I can probably work through the SSL/TLS for IMAP, amongst other
Does anyone have a similar setup they can share their experiences about?
