Re: F16 Kmail - lost all email in conversion


Now if I could just find something that would look to my network like an imap server but actually get my mail with pop3s I'd be really happy with my mail. That is, if thunderbird or kmail tries to get my pop3 mail from verizon, I want to have a service on my network that proxies the imap connection from thunderbird, actually gets the mail from verizon with pop3s but serves it to my network as imap. Of course in thunderbird I'd have to point it to go to the imap server on my network, and the imap server would look to verizon, get the pop3s mail and provide it by imap to thunderbird. I hear people say dovecot and citadel will do that but it looks complicated.

Is there such a thing?

You can either use offlineimap or use a pop3 fetcher like fetchmail or getmail to collect mails to a local archive that you then serve to thunderbird with dovecot or similar imap server. They are all in the fedora repos

Googling a combination (eg fetchmail + dovecot) will lead you to some tutorials.

good luck.

If Fedora would keep kmail1 alive in a compat package, for instance, I'd totally go for it. It'll save me the trouble to move to another e-mail system, which I'm reluctant to do.
Perhaps we should make a request for a new packaging of kmail1?
