dovecot



Anyone using dovecot as an IMAPS server with kmail?
I don't understand how it is meant to work.
Running kmail on my laptop does not cause dovecot
on my server to update its index files.
Should it?

I have to run kmail on the server,
without reading any messages there.
This causes dovecot to update its indexes.
Then I close kmail on the server.

Now my email is up-to-date on the laptop.

Obviously this is not what one is meant to do.
Should I run a cron job on the server which somehow
(I don't know how) causes dovecot to update its indexes?

Alternatively, as a bad alternative,
is there any simple command line option to kmail
which simply causes it to update its Accounts,
which I could run on my server?

If anyone is using dovecot + kmail
I'd be very interested to see your /etc/dovecot.conf .
