I have had good luck with uw-imap and dovecot. Dovecot seems to work better in FreeBSD 5.21 though. I had problems with uw-imap crashing. Dovecot is arguably more secure. The main drawback to dovecot is that it allows multiple clients access to a mailbox at once. It works great for well behaved clients but MacOS X's mail.app occasionaly screws up when deleting and downloading new messages simultaneously with dovecot. It never occurred with uw-imapd.
As for clients, I use mail.app on OSX, pine on the road through ssh (or when booted into FreeBSD at home), and Outlook 2003. I had a lot of trouble with Office XP's imap support, but it seems much better in 2003. Mozilla works ok as well. Old versions of netscape mail didn't handle deleting messages very cleanly. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
