My IMAP folder is local. I am running my own mail server on this computer
using postfix and dovecot.
In dovecot there is 5 options for "mail file location"
1. Detect automatically
2. Inbox folders in ~/Maildir
3. Inbox under /var/mail, folders in ~/mail
4. Inbox in ~/Maildir, folders in ~/mail
5. Other dovecot location
Ok I can't figure out how to get any of these to work except for #3, if I
choose anything else, then no mail is delivered at all. I think this is due to
me not fully understanding the difference between ~/Maildir and ~/mail.
I'm also somewhat suspecting this has something to do with my postfix
Ok, let me see where this question will get me,
currently my Kontact folders look like this
Christian Source FSLUG
Linux 4 Christians
What layout scheme might you suggest?
