Subject:[courier-users] Courier-IMAP problem (exceeded storage allocation) + XMail 1.20
From:Marcus Spiegel (

I have following problem with the combination Courier-IMAP with Xmail:

*** Setup: - I am running Xmail 1.2 ( on a Debian Sarge machine in a chroot environment (user xmail). -> Xmail acts as the mail server and also POP server.

- Courier-IMAP comes from the normal Debian installation, including the courier-authdaemon/courier-authmysql. -> Courier should provide the IMAP access of the Maildir data.

*** Problem: The first time I access a mail account using IMAP (btw. the XMail pop works fine), it creates in the Maildir two files and a directory: courierimapkeywords, imapsubscribed, imapuiddb As the Courier stuff is running as root (from the debian default installation), these files/directories are created with root privileges: drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Sep 24 11:14 courierimapkeywords -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12 Sep 24 11:14 courierimapsubscribed -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15 Sep 24 11:14 courierimapuiddb
