A big thanks for this, its working.

Now for my main reason of wanting to use dovecot..

I read the folllowing link:

In the conf file I have a namespace entry:

namespace public {
   separator = /
   prefix = Public/
   location = /tmp


mail:/home/bclark/Maildir# ls -la
-rw-r--r--  1 bclark bclark     0 May 16 19:26 dovecot-shared
-rw-r--r--  1 bclark bclark    62 May 17 14:11 dovecot-uidlist

My mail client logs in brilliantly and displays me mail.

But I dont see a shared folder.

And tips and or advice would greatfully be appreciated.

Kind Regards
Brent Clark
