View Full Version : Mail client setup?

11th April 2007, 08:14 PM
I always forget the magic on setting up evolution for the sendmail mbox.

I changed alaises for /me to get /root mail and ran newaliases.

In a term I can see the mail and it says new mail in /var/spool/mail

(I have one new install to set up and one that has been collecting mail in /var/spool/mail since f7t3 dvd install)

On Mozilla thuderbird it only gives one option for this and actually says chmod the /var/spool or mail dir with a 777 to get access. But on evolution there are 2 choices (one is none and one is mbox) None does not work, and mbox path drop down list will not allow selection of the user name in /var/spool/mail (grayed out). So I start with none, and then edit the evolution pref's and change to mbox (but I still can't select the mbox for /me.

What am I missing? How do I do this from the evolution setup without chmod or editing, etc?

Looks like procmail has an SELinux label of defaut_t and that is preventing receiving.
I can send ok now but /me is not selected in local or mbox choice.
I chmod 777 /var/spool/mail , but that didn't matter.

ops, evolution just bugged out.

Time to update
