I've installed dovecot and set it up so it has Maildir in my home folder. I can read this from other computers on my network with IMAP.
Now I need to set it up to pull mail from some POP3 servers.
The more I read, the more confusing it gets. I have installed fetchmail and now procmail because I think I need that too.
Every guide on the internet about these seems useless. There are some that inform you what to put in the configuration files - where are the configuration files? I can't find them.
Then, they all seem to use a different format called MBox (whatever that is) so will it even work with dovecot?
Why is this so complicated? All I want to do is read mail from a pop3 server on one computer on my network (the Ubuntu one) and to be able to read it with imap from others. Surely lots of small business have this set up - am I using the wrong software?
