As we talk about the original *NIX mail format I have a question about
mbox <> maildir too.
I'm about to set up a new (mail) system; pop3, imap supported
So I have a choice:
use sendmail/procmail + imap-uw -> the standard UNIX mail format
use the courier package -> gives me the Maildir format.
What are the pro's and cons for/against both mail standards?
Won't the maildir format with all this separate mails not be more
difficult to maintain?
I have to say that running courier/maildir never gave problems 'till now
but having the chooce I very much want some insights/advice on this
matter. Some reading points are OK too ;-)
