MailServe with Dovecot

Category : Technology/MailServeWithDovecot.txt

I've got a version of MailServe running on Leopard with support for Dovecot. Currently I've only compiled the Dovecot binaries to run on Intel machines, i.e., I hadn't had time to create Universal Binaries. And I don't have a way to convert the UW/IMAP mailboxes to the format used by Dovecot.

But if anyone would like to try it, just write to me. I don't yet have a download link because I need to make it work on PPC machines, too, and I'd like to offer this trial version first to MailServe for Leopard users.

I haven't thought about how I'm going to sell it. Probably it'll be a paid upgrade to MailServe for Leopard users. But I've got some way to go yet in terms of putting in the features.

For example, I'm going to start on an LDAP Enabler. And when that gets done, the interaction between the mail server and the LDAP server starts to get interesting, by way of Dovecot.

So I hope to get LDAP Enabler done soon and then we'll see how it goes.

P.S. : this is how the Dovecot sub-folder structure look in :
