View Full Version : postfix and cyrus-imapd
28th May 2004, 12:17 PM
I want to setup postfix and cyrus-imapd for my mail services. Postfix is not that problem but i don't have an idea where i should start at cyrus-imapd. Which things are already done when i install the cyrus-imapd rpm package and what do i have to do?

Make your life easier and use the dovecot secure imapd that comes with fedora..... Should work out of box.
Cyrus documentation is basically nill unless you join their lists and ask. Theoretically I thought cyrus-imapd was supposed to work with saslauthd and whatnot using the fedora build, but when I tried the pre-packaged binaries myself, it seemed as if thou it was trying to use the sasl database instead. I just switched to dovecot instead since it's not crazy. Otherwise I was going to install Courier

I've been wondering about the same setup--the documentation on cyrus-imap seems sparse. I also read somewhere that cyrus uses a non-standard implementation of Maildirs. Is this true?
In the past I have used qmail w/ courier and found Maildir storage to provide better performance when mailboxes start getting very big.
The reason I wanted to try Postfix this time was because it was included in the Fedora Distribution and supported by virtualmin.
Has anyone had much experience with postfix/dovecot with maildir?

Recently, I upgraded my FC2 (with Postfix), and noticed I should be using Dovecot rather than Cyrus-IMAP.
Problem; can't see my folders? But, I can send/receive mail. I suspect it is probably a setting in the dovecot.conf file I am missing. I read the DOCs but am still unable to get access to the folders. The path to my mail is; /home/(user)/mail
snip of a portion of the conf. file
You can also limit a width of string by giving the number of max. characters
# after the '%' character. For example %1u gives the first character of
# username. Some examples:
Any help greatly appreciated, and hopefully it will help someone else!
