I use Postfix with Dovecot and Fetchmail to harvest email from GMail, as well as send it. You mentioned that you did not need SMTP services. Personally, I would loose Procmail. It is a memory hog, and Dovecot with sieve is a better proposition IMHO. I am not sure what you are exactly looking for; however, using virtual accounts with Postfix or Postfix and Dovecot might ease your setup problems. -- Gerard _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
