Re: sendmail and maildir format ???

Thanks for ur quick reply and help..

but as u said do i need to create these . forward n .procmailrc files for each user.
if so then ?? 
how abt a global file

as far as spam is concerned i will be using Spamassassin with mailscanner .

how do i let sendmail know to use procmail as my LDA

i will be using dovecot as my Imap server

how will be the mail users created .. r they created as normal unix users which i have done for my earlier mail server

btw  i already have  mailserver for my old existing domain...

which runs sendmail + dovecot + Spamassissan + mailscanner with normal mbox format and is working perfectly OK .

but i jus want my new mailserver have mails with maildir format as i am expecting the mails for this domain users to be huge.

Thnak and appreciate

You also need a .procmailrc with your procmail rules:


* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes

You can find other procmail filters with google.

Now if you're using Cyrus IMAP, you need to use sieve to filter your 
incoming mail.
