    I have a suse10 server on which I am trying to setup cyrus/sendmail/sasl

    Cyrus and sasl is running fine and I can get an inbox, shared folders and all that. I seem to be missing something with the sendmail bit. If if send mail to [email protected], it windows up in /var/spool/mail instead of the user folder in /var/spool/imap.

    My mc file is pretty simple as per the below. I have read the cyrus docos and tried reading a few sendmail/cyrus tuts and had a borwse through O'Reily's bat book but I am getting nowhere. Any thoughts anyone? I tried putting the local mailer before the cyrus mailer and I tried removing the local mailer altogether. I have also tried cyrus instead of cyrus2. I recon I am missing some basic thing.

    define(`ALIAS_FILE', `/etc/aliases')dnl
    define(`confAUTH_OPTIONS', `A')dnl
    define('CYRUS_MAILER_FLAGS','[email protected]')dnl

    You could try to create a symbolic link from /var/spool/mail to /var/spool/imap:
    mv /var/spool/mail /var/spool/mail_bak
    ln -s /var/spool/imap /var/spool/mail

    No, the stuff that goes in t /var/spool/mail is in washington format while cyrus expects stuff in maildir format> Besides if I do a link, the mail headers won't go into the cyrus message header database.

    sendmail and cyrus /var/spool/mail - the answer

    Yay, I finally have the answer to this, stupid though it may be on my part.

    I thought that the was supposed to be in /etc/mail and in fact on my RHEL10 that's where it is. Not on SUSE though. After examining /etc/init.d/sendmail if find that it is using /etc/

    Added this to my

    define(`confLOCAL_MAILER', `cyrus')

    and then m4 to /etc/

    and all is well, what a waist of time
