I have this as a gnus configuration:
(setq imap-shell-program "/usr/local/sbin/dovecot -c /Users/hinmanm/.dovecotrc --exec-mail imap") (setq gnus-select-method '(nnimap "Mail" (nnimap-stream shell)))
This works fine from terminal Emacs, however in Cocoa emacs, the dovecot server is not started and Gnus says the mailbox is denied.
I faintly recall someone telling me there was a difference between the way terminal emacs and cocoa emacs spawned processes. How can I get this to work in Cocoa emacs?
