Description of problem:
Checking out the online docs for RHEL 4... and they still mention the "imap package" for imap and pop services although the imap package was dropped in favor of dovecot and/or cyrus-imap some time ago.
Spam and viruses are a big problem and the best place to stop them is at the server... yet Red Hat (nor any other Linux distro provider that I'm aware of) does not offer anything close to a comprehensive email solution. Admins are left to cook up their own email systems... draging them away from the fully supported model.
To setup a desirable email server... one has to use somethine like:
MailScanner or mimedefang
in conjunction with various virus scanners:
clamav, bitdefender, f-prot, etc
in conjunction with various spam solutions:
spamassassin, dcc, razor, pyzor, etc.
While you offer sendmail and spamassassin... they really aren't much of a solution.
You need to integrate all of the parts mentioned above into the official distro and support them to provide a real email solution... that is supported.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: I got misinformation
Expected Results: You should document the actual packages used... and add additional packages to make a workable email server solution
Not quite a dovecot bug. Please either file bug reports against dovecot if
you have some issues with it, or file bug reports with appropriate
components if you have issues with those. Bugzilla is not a forum for random
The fact that the documentation is outdated is what this report was about and I
attached it to what I thought was the most appropriate package.
Bugzilla, while yes "bug" is in the name... is also a place to request new
features or report operational inconsitencies that aren't really bugs.
I did do a little ranting... so just ignore that part. :)
