    exim and courier aren't talking to eachother

    I've got exim set up, I can recieve mail on it (not used for outgoing). There is mail for me in /var/spool/username. However, neither the courier pop3 or courier imap server can see it. When I check messages, there are none. If I use mutt from a command line, I can read the mail there. But I'd rather use Mozilla as my mail client.

    Any ideas? Running all of this on Debian unstable.

    Did you know that apt-get remove exim will sorta hose the system? All it said it was gonna remove was exim and the courier stuff...

    Gonna try to fix it, but may just end up reinstalling on a faster box (currently a 486sx33 with 24mb ram)....

    hehhehhe ... not meant to laugh at you or anything ....

    I removed Courier-MTA and it all got f$cked up. Now my box is left without any mail services .....

    What I would suggest is that to go ALL the way with all Courier products ( such they have MTA and POP and all that stuff ) or all with exim, fetchmail, popd route.

    IIRC, courier look at mails in ~/mail instead of /var/spool/username area. If you make a LN of that, you might do good but it's just a guess.

    Sorry for non-definitive answer ...
