I am running a Cyrus IMAP that needs to be replaced.
Geting a Dovecot IMAP up and running was surprisingly simple.
My configuration is close to Johnny Chaddas Howto at
Its a Dovecot 1.1.10 on FreeBSD 6.4
Anyway, while basic setup was easy, i stuck in a couple of details like
quota, managesieve, etc.
Actual major problem and showstoper is understanding the ACLs the
So i need a hint to be guided in the right direction.
What i need is a scenario, where user1 can get (for example) full access
to the folders of user2, read-only access to user3 etc.
A real world example:
Secretary has full access to the mailfolders of her boss, boss has
read-only acces to the sales-department folder.
1) is the possible?
2) can it be done with dovecot-acl files?
3) Namespaces: is it enough to have the private namespace for the job or
do i need another namespace?
4) if yes, how should this namespace look like?
Thanks for the help
