    I quote from the tutorial:

    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

    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 :)

    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

    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

    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)

    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:

    No, it's currently doing POP3, POP3S, IMAP, and IMAPS.

    If you want to use IMAP only, you must configure IMAP. I think the configuration file is /etc/dovecot.conf.

    I also had problems with IMAP. I too have the source.list according to the Perfect Setup FC4. I then read this thread to use DOVECOT but it did not work. It gives me errors. any advice on this would be great.

    It seems it may be that the original feeds are not working or existing as I get problems with apt-get php install php php-devel php-gd php-imap php-ldap php-mysql php-odbc php-pear php-xml php-xmlrpc.

    It gives me this error:

    E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

    Is there anything else I can do to get it to work with the Perfect Setup FC4?

    Can I use yum install? If so do I carry on installing afterwards the same as at present?

    You can try yum install, but I don't know if you'll get other results. FC4 is already quite old, so I guess that some repositories have been removed.
