one thing that troubles my mind today is a problem concerning Cristophs'
in connection with MacOS X 10.4 and the application Mail.app.
I am using Squirrelmail and the rest of the tutorial was only slightly
match my needs.
As I was browsing through some messageboards and newsgroups, I found out,
that MAIL.APP is supposedly not entirely RFC 2193 compliant. (IMAP 4 -
To be found at: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2193
Unluckily I am not an expert on Apple's MacOS.
Users connecting to the mailserver with mail.app are accepted and loged in.
They can use all kinds of features including sending and recieving mail.
The astonishing lies beneath it all.
When a user writes a mail and sends it, it is processed as all other traffic
but a copy of the mail will never show up. The folder sent messages (SENT)
exist under MAIL.APP, altough it exists on the server. There are no mails
stored in this folder. Also mail.app does not display the folders in their
correct order, if at all.
Only the INBOX folder is available.
Now it seems to me, that this is a problem of the client and I know, that
does not exist under MacOS X 10.5. So my question would be:
Does anyone know this problem or maybe encountered the same obstacle?
I would be grateful for any kind of advice or even linkresources on this
A workaround ;-) would be great, if possible and available.
(I could not find anything related to my problem on the Apple Support Pages)
I'm almost sure, that I forgot to give specific and important information on
So if there is anything you need to know, feel free to reply with further
questions on this setup.
