Thanks for the feedback. I thought I was invisible for minute there. Whew!

Actually as I remember the docs from our earlier implementations of
Qmail/Vpopmail/Vchkpw state that the % was the default for authentication
but later it began checking for @ as a sort of fail safe type method. I have
tested POP3 with both and they seem to authenticate either way. And IMAP
gets the same error either way.

I actually am now trying the following which does exclude the authmysql and
the authdaemon.

cd courier-imap-
./configure --prefix=/usr/local \
--exec-prefix=/usr/local \
--sysconfdir=/usr/local/etc/courier-imap \
--datadir=/usr/local/share/courier-imap \
--libexecdir=/usr/local/libexec/courier-imap \
--enable-workarounds-for-imap-client-bugs \
--disable-root-check --without-authpam \
--without-authldap --without-authpwd \
--without-authmysql --without-authpgsql \
--without-authshadow --without-authuserdb \
--without-authcustom --without-authcram \
--without-authdaemon \
--with-authvchkpw --with-ssl

But this too gives me the same error. Maybe it is the way I am testing it.
Does Microsoft Outlook support the IMAP protocol properly? Anybody out there
use Outlook with IMAP specifically Courier-IMAP? I have Outlook setup
basically the same as a POP3 account except of course the obvious difference
that it is IMAP.

Yes I plan to do the same. I put all of my shell scripts for install
together one application at a time so that I can better break it out to
program the master install script (or toaster as I understand it).  My
problem with the toaster scripts out there are the webmail clients used.  I
plan to use the Horde suite of tools with some modifications to security
issues and interface. It will include ALOT more features than sqwebmail and
alot better looking.

Question on Toaster: Where did Toaster scripts get their name from and why
Toaster? Why not Waffle Iron?  Or better yet Margarita Blender!
