Ubuntu :: Use An Email Client Like Alpine To Read Imported Email?

Feb 24, 2011

we had a server with Hostway, and it was running ubuntu. The server also had Plesk installed, which did some funny things. We had several websites on that server, and many email addresses. Then we changed servers. Now we have a server through Rackspace and it is also running Ubuntu. It also has Virtualmin installed, which generally does not impose as many unconventional changes on Ubuntu as Plesk did.

Rather than using Thunderbird to download my email (which is what I used to do) I've decided I'll start reading my email on the server. So I will ssh to the server and then use some email client, such as Alpine, to read the email. So I installed Alpine. I have an email account for "lawrence". The email address is lawrence @ krubner. Currently, when mail arrives for that account, it is stored here:


and then it is transferred to hear:


When I start Alpine, while logged in as lawrence, Alpine automatically sets up an inbox for me here:


How do I get Alpine (or any other client) to read from the correct folder? I'm fairly sure the email package (the MTA) at work on this new server is Postfix. As near as I can tell, my email is held for 24 hours in this folder:


and then it gets transferred here:


Alpine only lets me set one path for my Inbox, so I'm not sure what path I should set. If I use "cur" I will see all email 1 day late, but if I use "new" then I will miss email if I go a day without checking.

General :: Command Based Email Client To Send Email Through Secure Smtp?

Jul 26, 2010

In my Windows environment, I use email client such as Microsoft Outlook to connect to our email server to send email with the following configuration:

Incoming server (POP3): 995 - (requires with SSL)
Outgoing server (SMTP): 465 - (use encrypted connection SSL)


And the mail server requires user ID login and password.how do I setup a text command based email client in my Linux (Centos 5.1) to send out email through the existing email server above, which is in another machine? The email client has to be text command based because I need to use command line to send notification email from anothar application installed in my Linux (Centos 5.1) Since the email client will only be used to send email notification, I don't require setting up of an email server in my linux.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Email - Intersperse Replies Into Quoted Email?

Apr 24, 2010

I use 'quoted' style for reply emails. I want to be able to intersperse my replies within a quoted reply i.e. if the email had three paragraphs, I'd like to be able to have my replies between each of the paragraphs. At the moment, I don't seem to be able to do anything other than delete from the quoted section - I try to simulate my requirements by cutting and then 'paste quotation', but this doesn't always work as sometimes Evolution adds too many levels of '> ' .

Server :: Routing Inbound Email To Multiple Email Servers?

Dec 21, 2009

I have recently setup a new mail server and have simulated sending and receiving on the new email server. The new email server will replace the primary one.I would like to setup the new email server in parallel with the existing one.This way i can observe issues that might occur and be aware of what could go wrong. I want to received mail to be delivered to both mail servers at the same time.I would like to use postfix, exim i find a bit to difficult to understand.I have thought of using transport maps, the only problem is that you can only forward mail to one server at a time using transport maps.I think recipient_bcc_maps and sender_bcc_maps could work, i would just like ideas of how i can do this.

Ubuntu :: Recommendation For Simple Email Client?

Dec 13, 2010

I am looking for an email client with the following specifications. I have trialled most of the commonly recommended clients but have found ongoing irritations that push me to keep looking.


1. specific email client, not PIM
2. can run as a portable application or configuration files and mail can be stored remotely
3. minimal or no dependences
4. can scan for viruses


Evolution matches 5, 6 and 9. The program is a good general client but slow and glitchy. Can't scan for viruses in emails. Kmail matches 1, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9. Does most of what I need with the powertools plugin but does not play well with Gnome. The program comes with too many dependencies that makes it very hard to move data around or even use on various machines. The dependence on the akonadi server is quite frustrating and makes this kde application a great product but only really useful on kde. Thunderbird matches 1, 2, 5, 8 and 9. Again reasonably comprehensive but lacks the basic ability to scan incoming emails (filters can pipe incoming data to an external program). The fact that the mail is intrinsically linked with your Mozilla profile makes working with the email file very difficult.

Clawsmail matches 1, 2 (old version), 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 (Windows Port old and not maintained) and 9. Looks good but appears to lack portability and a current windows version. I want to check my mail (predominantly POP accounts), have spam and viruses set aside/deleted/quarantined, have my attachments saved to a directory so my mailbox does not get too big and for the emails and configuration data be stored in a distinct directory that can be readily synchronized between computers. The program should be able to run on Ubuntu and Windows XP/Vista/7, on the same data once the data directories are synchronized. And no, I don't want an Internet based option like gmail or yahoo.

Ubuntu Servers :: Dovecot/Postfix Cannot Receive Email Via Client?

Apr 12, 2011

I have a very basic install of dovecot and postfix on the latest version of Ubuntu server. This is an internal only email server with internal only DNS. I can send email via clients and check said emails via the command line when logged in as the appropriate user. I cannot for the life of me check said emails via SquirrelMail on the server nor using IMAP clients. I have no idea where to look and I can't find a basic tutorial for the life of me. Where should I start?

Software :: Evolution Email: Mark As Read?

Jul 13, 2011

In every other e-mail program that I have encountered in my years upon this Earth, including previous version of Evolution, when you open a message, the message in the main displays stops being displayed in bold, so that you can see it has been opened and read. In my new version, 2.32.3, the message header stays bold, even once you have opened the message. In order to make it stop being bold, you have to manually "Mark As Read" in the context menu.

I cannot see any option in the preferences that needs to be switched on so that this (until now) default behaviour of marking read messages as Read automatically, can resume. A Google of this problem just brings up messages on other forums, asking the same question but getting no answer. Has anyone on LinuxQuestions come across this Evolution feature before? Is this an Evolution bug, or is there a way of having opened messages Marked as Read automatically, which virtually every other e-mail application does anyway?!

Debian Multimedia :: Email Client For Gmail And IMAP

Feb 5, 2012

I am running debian testing, amd64 architecture on my box. I have 3 gmail accounts that I use regularly. I have used mainly thunderbird/icedove to access my mailboxes via imap.However, now two of them have really several tens of thousands of emails I often experience difficulties in dealing with them (the connection often freezes, browsing my folders is a pain).I tried also sylpheed and claws, but the situation has not really improved.I do not think there is anything fundamentally wrong in the way I configured my accounts on the various clients (actually, some of them even boast automatic setup of gmail accounts).
