    I got my new dedicated server today. It's running Debian, and I found that POP3 and IMAP are working fine, but I couldn't fetch emails over POP3s and IMAPs (SSL). What do I have to do to make this work? Do I have to install additional packages, or is it just a configuration thing?

    Do you use mboxes (i.e., are your mailboxes in /var/spool/mail), or do you use Maildir (i.e., there is a Maildir directory in each user's home directory)?

    What is your curent POP3 and IMAP daemon?

    Uhh... I think my mailboxes are under /var/spool/mail. At least there are some files (named after users) with a current date, and their filesize is not 0...
    I had a look in my /etc/inetd.conf, and my POP3 daemon seems to be ipopd, and my IMAP daemon uw-imapd...

    Then run

    apt-get install ipopd-ssl uw-imapd-ssl
    and you're done! :)

    I'm using courier-imap and courier-pop3 and Maildir. Can I also use pop3s and imaps?
