Never seen these problems. IIRC, there was a thread about error
messages coming from famd several months ago. As I understand the
message, it's just a famd config issue, but I don't know for sure.
I use procmail to pipe through SpamAssassin (spamd) and do some other
sorting before delivering to maildirs, but I never have connection
problems (unless I forget to recheck configs after upgrading the
courier auth package). Of course, I haven't talked my wife into
letting me buy that PowerBook yet . . .
Courier-imap has been running flawlessly for me for around 3 years. I
understand it can handle several hundreds (or thousands) of times more
load than I can give it. It's not idiot proof, but running a mail
server really shouldn't be, don't you think?
