totally of, I'm trying to understand what's happening,
aka, 'how does email works' ?
I have Dovecot 1.x, all works fine
I noticed in the logs failed access from no-longer-hosted account/user,
physical account deleted/removed, most likely from user's BBerry, every
Jun 24 07:31:25 dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected: Inactivity (auth
failed, 1 attempts): user=<vvv at tld>, method=PLAIN, rip=188.8.131.52,
I recreated account/physical path /var/mail/.../tld/vvv at tld
I logged in with webmail, all works, webmail logged out
I physically copied some emails (from another account) to physical path
../../tld/vvv at tld/new
after a while, I see the email files NO LONGER in ../../../new BUT now in
../../tld/vvv at tld/cur
Q: that means the email was accessed, doesn't it ?
BUT, I don't see any more access in the /var/log/maillog, not failed, not OK
I did see one, after I recreated account
Jun 30 20:01:53 dovecot: IMAP(vvv at tld): Disconnected: Logged out bytes=32/666
NONE since, but email files move from new to cur ??
if I observe email files moving from 'new' to 'cur' shouldn't I see some
action logged in /var/log/maillog to correspond ?
