View Full Version : [all variants] Dovecot, won't pick up mail that "mail" shows

January 15th, 2011, 04:26 PM

I recently re-installed my server, and since, the "mail" command shows mail that has not been read, increasing daily, that is in /var/mail/myname.

And Dovecot will not allow me to read it via Thunderbird Pop3 pickup.

I have tried changing the maildir variable in dovecot.conf to everthing that made sense to me and so far no success.

There appears to be a single file in /var/mail that contains all of the mail, so that I think would be "mbox". But so far that hasn't worked.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance.
