I quote from the tutorial:

Quote:
Edit /etc/apt/sources.list. It should contain the following lines:

Code:
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/4/i386 core updates freshrpms
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/4/i386 tupdates
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms
In the last line, rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms, the 1 is not an error or typo! This is the repository that has the imap package which we are going to install soon! So do not change these lines!
I guess your /etc/apt/sources.list is missing the last line. Put it in there, and run
Code:
apt-get update
afterwards. Then you can install imap:
Code:
apt-get install imap

Default Not There

I can't find it either. I searched through the listing of freshrpms on the Fedora Core 1 entry manually too and cannot find any package with the words IMAP in it. Was it removed from the server?

And you checked that this line is in your /etc/apt/sources.list:

rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms

(Yes, its a fedora 1 not fedora 4 repository!) and run apt-get update before you tried to install the package?

apt-get update worked for me and imap installed fine as well as the other packages I was missing initially

Default Trouble installing IMAP on FC4

I've been following the The The Perfect Setup - Fedora Core 4 - Page 4, but I'm having trouble with the imap package.

I've read the above comments and tried to install imap as you instructed. My sources.list file reads:
Code:
# Add any local / 3rd party repositories here..
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/4/i386 core updates freshrpms
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/4/i386 tupdates
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms
I ran:

Code:
apt-get update
After that I tried to install imap, and I get a 403 Forbidden Error as you can see:

Code:
[root@laptop ssl]# apt-get install imap
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
   openssl097a (0.9.7a-3.1)
   xinetd (2.3.13-6)
The following NEW packages will be installed:
   imap (2002d-3)
   openssl097a (0.9.7a-3.1)
   xinetd (2.3.13-6)
0 upgraded, 3 newly installed, 0 removed and 265 not upgraded.
Need to get 1287kB/2210kB of archives.
After unpacking 4871kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
Err http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386/core imap 1:2002d-3  403 Forbidden
Failed to fetch http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/1/i386/RPMS.core/imap-2002d-3.i386.rpm 403 Forbidden
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
Any thoughts on how I can get this work? Otherwise, I'll have to run the other package called dovecot like you mention here? How will this change the commands, which are shown in the tutorial, if I do use dovecot:

Code:
chkconfig --levels 235 sendmail off
chkconfig --levels 235 postfix on
chkconfig --levels 235 saslauthd on
chkconfig imap on
chkconfig imaps on
chkconfig ipop3 on
chkconfig pop3s on
/etc/init.d/sendmail stop
/etc/init.d/postfix start
/etc/init.d/saslauthd start
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart
Thanks in advance for your help,
Craig

Take a look at chapter 9 on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_se...dora_core_5_p5 . That should work for Fedora Core 4, too.

Default Got it working, but I have some questions

I've gotten it working now, but I'm going to try and configure the e-mail now. I'll start a new post if I run into trouble. However, I've got a things I want to clear up before I get too far along.

I really want to configure the server to be a IMAP Mail server so I'm working toward that goal. From what I could tell from the set-up I carried out here and here. The server is currently configured to do POP3 only. I did a "netstat -tap" with the following output:

Code:
[root@laptop postfix]# netstat -tap
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address               Foreign Address             State       PID/Program name

I see a listing for IMAP so I take it I will be able to run the server as an IMAP; however, I think there will be more configuring to do regarding dovecot? Any idea of a good source of information for this? There is what looks like a nice wiki here however, it seems like I should be doing this through the ISPConfig interface and I haven't seen anything regarding how to do that?

Finally, I did a checked of the current levels for the list of processes I'm running, and I see that sendmail is running at level 4. Is this right? I thought sendmail was supposed to be off since postfix is the mail carrier? Here is the list of processes and the levels on which they run:

Code:

Thanks for you help,
