Nope. If FAM support is available, it gets compiled and used.
The fault is really with Suse. If it doesn't use FAM, it should NOT
even install the client libraries. It is a packaging error to install
the client libraries, but not the server.
Thanks Sam. Probably the admin's fault (yours truly) more than Suse's.
;-) I just installed fam-server, set it up, and everyone is happy.
On a lark I removed the fam development libraries from my build machine,
commented out the BuildPreReq for fam-devel and rebuilt the rpms. The
new imapd works fine except, of course, that there's no advanced idle.
Is there some lurking problem out there that's going to hit me? We have
a really simple setup - no shared folders or anything like that. Just
mail coming in and about 20 office clients each reading their own boxes
Thanks again Sam. We've said it before and we'll say it again - thanks
