Use an IMAP server

Posted by: Administrator on September 16, 2004 11:00 AM
If you want to save yourself some time when you next decide to change your mail program, you should consider running your very own IMAP server. I use <A HREF="http://dovecot.org/" title="dovecot.org">Dovecot</a dovecot.org>, with <A HREF="http://www.qcc.ca/~charlesc/software/getmail-4/" title="www.qcc.ca">Getmail</a www.qcc.ca> delivering directly to Dovecot's Maildir inbox, and I can use any mail reader I like without importing or manually migrating my mail.
