I installed postfix and created an IMAP account in KMail.
KMail first connected to localhost but the IMAP folder never got new mail 
(although I could copy some there from within KMail )

I played for days with the postfix and dovecot config files and 
ownership/authorisations of my folders and as a result I messed up things 
that functionned previously. Now KMail tells me it cannot connect to 
The command:    telnet localhost 143 says connection refused but
Sendmail will have a message delivered in ~/Maildir/new/   (from config)
and also in /usr/lib/dovecot/Maildir/new/  (wonder why)

Needless to say googling was of no help.
No log file in /var/log tell me anything , are there other locations for 

Any tips?

Happy new year          Perry
