Subject: [gentoo-user] cyrus-sasl, courier-authlib, which one? or both?
Date: Wed, 11 Jan 2006 21:24:30
1 I am currently running my email server on my workstation, providing email
2 for myself and my wife. I use mutt, my wife uses outlook.
4 I basically used the virtual email server guide, it has run ok for two years,
5 but my wife suddenly cannot access her email. The issue seems to be the
6 pop3 server, not listening on port 110.
8 I've decided to move the mail server to my router/firewall/proxy server.
9 That will allow me to play harder on my workstation, without fear of
10 disrupting email. Question is: How?
12 I am planning on building a simpler email system (I don't use imap,
13 virtual domains, or a user database). In my quest for Zen-like simplicity
14 and rock-solid quality, I'm planning on using postfix, plus courier as a
15 pop3 server. For authentication, some guides use sasl, some use authlib.
16 Which is better?? And why would anyone use both?! They seem to both serve
17 the same function. Any suggestions/pointer appreciated.
