Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers Tell UW-Imap to read /var/mail/mailbox ?? Post 77908 by d11wtq on Wednesday 13th of July 2005 06:26:22 PM

Maybe I should be asking a different question...

What tools do I need to have multiple mailboxes for multiple domains on the same hardware? Like a shared server, expect all the accounts are mine.

I cant find any way to get UW-IMAP to accept a login from users other than those who have shell access.

Example: I actually have an account on a shared now and I have an email address mail@mydomain.com...

UW-IMAP would try to interpret the "mail" portion as the "mail" user on my system but somehow my host authenticates me as "mail+mydomain.com".... how have they done that? It can't be an alias in /etc/aliases for the fact that if somebody on the same server had mail@theirdomain.com it wouldn't work.

I don't mind if I have to add UNIX system users to acheive this... but I'd have to put the home dirs somewhere tidier than /home... like /srv/mail/user and somehow avoid isses with usernames matching usernames from other domains on same server.

Thanks in advance Smilie
