HowTo Courier-IMAP / Postfix MySQL virtual users Shared Folder help
I have got my mail server running great on etch with postfix, mysql virtual accounts, and i use courier-imap.

what I do want to get implemented though is a global shared public folder.

I am having a hard time figuring this out.

Looked at <a href="">courier maildirmake</a> but struggling to get it working.

maildirmake -S /home/Public_Folder
maildirmake -s write -f public /home/Public_Folder
Added "public /home/Public_Folder" to /etc/courier/maildirshared

after that point not sure what to do really to get global share enabled.

my goal would be to have new created accounts have read / write access to the folder by default where users can store important mail that other users can see for future reference.

Any help or tips would be appreciated.

okay i got it showing in my list on my windows client when i subscribe now..

did a ..

chown -cR vmail:vmail /home/Public_Folder
chmod 2777 -cR /home/Public_Folder


but problem now is when i use Outlook Express and subscribe i get the structure

Public_Folder (none editable) > public (non editable) > public (editable)

anyone know if this is normal or there a way to get it to this structure?

Public_Folder (none editable) > public (editable)


maybe if i can get the acl's working right i can restructure it.


authenumerate -s
prints 5000 5000 /home/vmail


maildiracl -set /home/Public_Folder INBOX.Public_Folder.public anyone cleirtx

maildiracl -list Public_Folder INBOX.Public_Folder.public

owner aceilrstwx
administrators aceilrstwx
anyone ceilrtx


but in Outlook when trying to create a folder in the first instance of Public_Folders says

Unable to create the folder. The server responded: 'Access denied for CREATE on Public_Folder.public.newfoldername (ACL "c" required)'.

is there a special group that i would need to add for the ACL?
