ewww.. do NOT use the "imap" package plz.. install dovecot !!

(shutdown and remove the "imap package")

< 3 minute simple setup starts>

zypper install dovecot

cd /usr/share/doc/packages/dovecot/


sed -i -e 's|ssl_disable = .*|ssl_disable = no|' /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf

sed -i -e 's|#protocols = .*|protocols = imap imaps pop3 pop3s|'

#compatible with UW (use this only if you had uw running previously)
#if not using uw replace %08Xv%08Xu for %08Xu%08Xv

sed -i -e s|#pop3_uidl_format = .*|pop3_uidl_format = %08Xv%08Xu|'

chkconfig dovecot on

rcdovecot restart

<3 minute setup ends>
