General :: Mutt Nested Mailboxes Navigation Possible?

Feb 18, 2010

I receive a lot of emails daily, and with the ever-growing amount of maildirs I'm in need to structure/optimize the browsing in mutt. My maildirs follow this naming scheme: .domain.category.sub_category

My goal is to break domain, category and sub_category into nested levels when browsing through the mailboxes. This is sort of achieved through the use of imap. But I stumble upon a few snags, so my questions are:

Is this nested mailboxes view possible by directly accessing ~/Mail and not using IMAP?
E.g. set folder="~/Mail" and set spoolfile="~/Mail/.INBOX"
When I start mutt I'm presented with all mailboxes available, which is what I want to get away from. I want to get directed directly into my default/main inbox like I do when accessing ~/Mail directly. How?

When hitting c (a defined macro, see configuration below) I again get presented with all the mailboxes available, and not the mailboxes at the current browsing level, e.g. mailboxes containing a specific category. To get this view I need to hit c+TAB. I've solved this by adding a <tab> to the c macro's. When finally getting mutt to present me mailboxes in nested levels they are only enumerated and not annotated with N, indicating new mail, or even better, total number of new mails in or under a folder. I know it's possible to define format on the different views, but is there one for this view? If so, which?

My mutt configuration:
set autoedit
set edit_headers
set reverse_name
set from='blapp'
set realname='Blapp'
set use_from .....

# Automatic viewing of html mail, but always prefer text/plain
set implicit_autoview
alternative_order text/plain text/html

General :: Navigation In 'less' Not Working?

Oct 23, 2010

I just upgraded my ubuntu to 10.10 and discovered that the navigation keys in the 'less' utility are not working anymore. Both the cursor keys and the page keys are just echoed as key codes:


(I hit up, down, right, left, pgup, pgdown)

This is really nasty - moreover, this issue seems to be too difficult to google (at least for me) beause 'less' is not a very good keyword to search for

PS: I already checked TERM=xterm -- must be something else...

General :: Using Dropbox With Mutt

Oct 28, 2010

Have you used dropbox to sync your mail dirs? Was it a disaster? ... ? I have been using dropbox to sync across three ubuntu machines (two with 9.04, one with 10.04) and a windows vista machine, for about six months. I've seen a couple of oddities but am basically very happy with it. I pay for their 50GB store.

For email I use mutt and download (fetchmail) separately onto two of the ubuntu machines, outside the dropbox folders. It's a bit irritating maintaining two different mail dirs, but it does make for more security. I'm now thinking about putting the mail dirs into the dropbox folder. But if something then goes wrong with the syncing, it will be serious.

Software :: Easy Way Of Managing Virtual Mailboxes?

May 3, 2010

I have been tasked with setting up a server (Well 2 actually!) I have a test bed set u and configured the way i require it. The only thing i'm still missing is some sort of management for Virtual mailboxes. Currently using Postfix/Dovecot combination. Dovecot is using separate user and password files per domain, But I cant expect other people to be able to manage text files and commands to update users.

I have been looking at virtualmin for complete management, but am wondering about how restrictive it will be on the rest of the server.So the question, is there an easy way (Or easier) of managing virtual mailboxes? (Users/passwords can be stored however works best.Currently using Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 but server installation will be either 8.04LTS or 10.02?

Server :: Postfix Management Web Interface For Virtual Mailboxes

I'm looking for a Postfix Management Web interface for user, domains, etc... The problem is I'm not using mysql for domains/users, so I can't use postfixadmin. I use virtual mailboxes as described here: [URL]

Basically all mappings are saved inside an /etc/postfix/vmaps file. The users/passwords files are in /home/vmail/passwd and /home/vmail/shadow. Users are in /home/vmail/$domain/$user

I searched for a web management tool that supports my config for weeks now, and can't seem to find any...

Software :: Importing Eudora (Windoze) Mailboxes Into Evolution?

Jul 20, 2009

I have recently installed Ubuntu 9.04 JJ on several ex-windoze/dual boot machines for my family. All has gone well apart from one niggle with email. We have used Eudora for years and been quite happy with it. Having looked at the Linux offerings I found the Evolution packaged with Ubuntu offered the most similar feature set (correct me if I'm wrong - I have not looked at a huge selection). All is well except for one or two little problems importing Eudora mailboxes -

1) all 'sent' mails seem to lose the date/time information - I have tried the import feature on Evolution and also manually moving the mailboxes. In both cases the messages are fine but no date information is carried over. Received mails are fine in both cases. This makes proper archiving very difficult.

2) mails lose the 'replied/reply' flags. Now the second is no big deal and may be a 'feature' of Eudora not implementing the Berkeley format correctly (or the feature doesn't exist anyway). The first however is a bit of a devil - if it is incorrect format by Eudora then shame on them.

Debian Configuration :: Make Mailboxes For Each Virtual Host On Server?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm using Debian 5 with Exim 4 on my VPS. My purpose is to make mailboxes for each virtual host on my server. What do I have: 1. Exim is set correctly - receiving mail from [URL]... is successfull. 2. Mail for [URL]... is delivered, and the mail for [URL]... too. But [URL]... is the site written to /etc/hosts (it's localhost), and [URL]... is virtual host. But mail from both boxes writes to /var/mail/mail. Now what do I need: 1. Make mail for [URL]... store in [URL].... and mail for [URL].. store in www/Maildir. 2. Make mailboxes like [URL].... to receive mail by Thunderbird. 3. Set passwords for [URL]... and [URL]... (I don't want to enter my system user/root passwords).

Fedora Servers :: Migrate Local Users And Sendmail Mailboxes?

Apr 21, 2010

I found 2 previous posts, one from 2005 and one from 2006. The 2005 post was not very helpful and the 2006 threads are not exactly what I was expecting. So I wanted to ask the question to be sure. I have already stood up the new fedora 12 server. The old server is also fedora 12. I need to migrate local users and sendmail mailboxes. In the past couple of years the environment was small enough to create a copy of the users and then have the users mail themselves, but I want to start migrating users/mailboxes properly.

On a unix level I am a jr admin, but I have extensive senior level experience as a windows engineer and network engineer. I do feel comfortable with using the unix command line, but usually operate the unix systems thru webmin because I am not familular with more complex commands. Ideally a software solution to migrate users and/or mailboxes from one server to another is what I am looking for, but in leiu of a software solution I still need to migrate user accounts and their mailboxes. LDAP is not in place, but if the process becomes easier with LDAP I am willing to do what is needed to set up LDAP. (I have no previous experience setting up LDAP)

I do not want to change my mail server from sendmail to different software. At least right now. Both systems are up and running. They can connect to each other via public ipv4 address' only. The new server has already been installed and configured with all the software to match the old server. How do I migrate users and sendmail mailboxes from one fedora 12 server to another fedora 12 server?

Fedora :: Thunderbird - Cut Parts Of Nested Quotes?

Jun 24, 2011

In Thunderbird, when composing a reply to an email that you have quoted, is there a way to cut only part of the quoted material? A typical situation is that you have exchanged a series of emails with someone and your reply has all the old emails from your and the otherperson quoted in it. The quotes are nested inside each other. Often I'd like to chop off all the very old messages and just leave the last few. But the Thunderbird editor seems to make it an all-or-nothing proposition. I can cut the whole quote, but can't highlight a few nested parts and cut them.
