RE: pop3

Hi Alexander,

I did some homework for you:

rpm -qa|grep cyrus

-- So this is missing from the FC2 distribution?  Did not show
up for me off the FC1 or FC2 distro.  I did a upgrade from
FC1 -> FC2 and maybe that was part of the problem.  dunno.

Please ignore the 'LOCAL_0?' because that was taken
from an OLD Cyrus HOWTO for which to add entries
to the sendmail.mc file.  You have already explained
the new ones in your bug report.

Thanks for the bug report link.  So it appear there
are a tad more fixes needed, entries for the sendmail.mc
and for the stock cyrusv2.mc file.

I have gotten the dovecot running but have a slight problem
as it shows in the logs.  Dovecot wants directory access
to the user's home directory where I do not want certain
users to have an actual home directory.  For example:


Because I wanted this entry to be a VIRTUAL user.  Pop
will work because it will pop information from
/var/spool/mail/saa_support file and the saa_support
user is actually mapped in /etc/mail/virtusertable.

Does this make sense? If there is a better way to do
this I am all ears ;-)

Hi Alexander,

Thanks for the information.  I will try Dovecot
as suggested as it seems that that my upgrade
from FC1 -> FC2 might have blown Cyrus out of
the water. Not sure why I am missing cyradm.

Did you install all needed Cyrus-IMAPd packages? If you miss cyradm then
you miss the cyrus-imapd-utils or perl-Cyrus. cyradm is not obsolete.

I suggest you use dovecot if you do not need the functionality of
