I've been attempting to setup my first full blown mailserver this past
week. I decided on exim4 and dovecot because they seemed relatively
painless to get up and running in short order and have all the features
I need in an imap/maildir setup. Let me say this now -- I'm sure there
are a million better ways to have done this, but with my limited
knowledge and ability this setup is what I have and is what I intend to
keep (unless it will take 5 minutes to change).
My question then: how do I get /var/mail/mboxfile into maildir format?
I've used the Robin Whittle's Mb2md.pl script on the /home/user/mbox
file to break it into discreet messages. However, this doesn't help when
mail has to come from /var/mail/mbox does it? I'm sure I'll have to run
the script on the /var/mail/mbox file, but won't it still be the default
location where all new messages are appended?
I can access all the imap folders and subfolders in /home/user/Maildir
without any problems. However, I cannot retreive any new messages since
exim4/dovecot, or fetchmail (I really have no idea which, I'm way out of
my league here) is using the mbox file in /var/mail. How can I configure
things correctly then?
Thanks for any suggestions regarding my problem, and for any suggestions
regarding future setups.
