2 points: dovecot & Fedora list



(1) Dovecot: I was very embarrassed indeed. I read the dovecot site to find that it did not yet properly support mbox format. How sad for me. I switched back to uw-imapd & will wait until it supports mbox fully. So at anytime I'm happy to be corrected, but isn't mbox the standard format in linux? If so, & dovecot doesn't yet support mbox, then why should it be preferred for use over uw-imapd (leaving alone the fact that Fedora automatically knocked out my uw-imap & replaced it with cyrus-imapd all without any say from me!)

(2) someone answered in a previous post suggesting all sorts of resources and mailing-lists I can subsribe to for non Fedora specific posts. I thank that person for the information but point out that given fedora is made up of packages that have mailing-lists elsewhere, then what is the fedora list actually for? Theoretically there should be no posts to the list at all! Kernel problems -> kernel, dovecot issues -> dovecot etc. The next point is this: I didn't chose to move from uw-imapd. I was quite happy with it. Installing FC2 made that choice for me. Is it therefore not relevant to point out any flaws about dovecot or ask questions to the fedora list?
