Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to OT: imap server recommendation

Posted by James Thornton on
I agree that Courier-IMAP's documentation is lacking, but it does support Maildir and SSL -- do the others?

It took some time, but I got Courier-IMAP-SSL installed and running, and I'm using omail ( for webmail -- it supports Maildir, and it reads e-mail directly off the HDD, not over IMAP.

While my IMAP server isn't under a heavy load (it's just me and my family/friends), Courier has been solid, requiring no intervention.
