Postfix and Dovecot on Lion

Category : Technology/PostfixDovecotLion.txt

I've managed to get Dovecot and Postfix working again on Lion. This is version 2.0.12 of Dovecot. There were so many changes to Dovecot especially, and to Postfix, and also, most importantly, to the underlying operating system, that I despaired of ever being able to figure them all out again, at one stage.

But these are just the basics. There are still a whole lot of issues ahead - Fetchmail, SMTP authentication, POP and IMAP, SSL, spam filtering, user account creation, etc… 

Going from one cat to another, from Jaguar to Lion, has never been easy. Apple has never been one for staying still.

Now, on to Developer Preview 3. Expect more things to break :-) We're glutton for punishment.
