>same across the board. Does anyone here use sendmail + dovecot +
>maildir? if so what's the best way of going about this?
We're using Procmail as LDA. Emails are delivered in a 'hashed-mailspool'
fashion (e.g. /var/mail/r/remy/).
This is the build information of the procmail package:
In order to addept Procmail to the hashed mailspool used in the FALW
email subsystem, some files have to be changed:
Set 'BASENAME' to: /opt/procmail
Set 'ETCRC' to: /etc/opt/procmail/procmailrc
Set 'ETCRCS' to: /etc/opt/procmail/procmailrcs/
Set 'DEFlockext' to: /procmail.lock
Now issue an 'make'. Procmail will be build. After the build, a file named
'autoconf.h' is created. This file must be altered:
Change 'MAILSPOOLDIR' to: /var/mailstore/
Add these lines: #define MAILSPOOLSUFFIX "/"
#define MAILSPOOLHASH 1
Do another 'make'. Procmail will now be build the way we want to. All
files needed are in the 'new' subdirectory.
We build Procmail on Solaris 9 with gcc. Although the source code
says some things could be altered in source, this doesn't work for
us. The method above works.
