I've got the courier-imap-ssl package installed and running alongside sendmail on a Linux box. However, I'm having a problem. I've changed the mail directory using
MAILDIRPATH=/path/to/email/dir in both the
imapd files, and was sure to use
maildirmake /path/to/email/dir to create the directory.
What's even weirder is that when I try to send an email to myself (using Thunderbird, which doesn't appear to have any problems), the email appears in my sent folder, but I never receive it. Instead of my sent email being sent to
/path/to/email/dir, it get put in
/var/mail/user instead. My email goes to the same place when sent from an external host as well.
I can't find anything with a Google search, and I don't know where to even begin on finding the solution to this on my own. Is there some kind of configuration or missing program I need to fix this?
