I am considering switching over to maildirs, but I have some obstacles
which I am wondering if there is a easy solution for.
PROs: prevents truncation/corruption of mbox files and works nicely over
NFS. i also need maildirs for some of the other qmail
CONs: * pine4 doesn't support maildirs, but there are scripts etc that
come with the distribution that can go around this by converting
maildirs to mbox format so pine can read it
* qpopper doesn't work, cuz they don't have support for maildirs
either. i will have a downtime if i switch over to qmail-pop3. i
have never used it so thats why the downtime length is uncertain.
* i am guessing biff doesn't work with maildirs... i was wondering
if qbiff will work, i was not able to get it to work.
Are there any other cons to switching over to maildirs? I am pretty much
using qmail on a shell/isp type server. So, it'll be running the usual
bind, qmail etc. Nothing totally special. Have any experiences switching
over to maildirs?
