Using Sendmail and Qpopper
Posted on 2003-12-03
I have a Gentoo Linux system set up and want to use it as a mail server using Sendmail and Qpopper.
Sendmail is installed ok, and I can send and receive mails. However, Qpopper never sees any of the mails that get received.
Now I think this is because sendmail is placing the incoming mails in my user directories i.e. ~/.maildir (I can see them in there), and Qpopper looks in /var/spool/mail (which is always empty).
What I need to do is either configure sendmail to place the mails in /var/spool/mail or setup Qpopper to look in the local mailboxes (at least that is what I think I need to do!). I don't seem to be able to find a way of doing either of these things.
Any help appreciated
