Taking control of my email

I’ve installed UW imapd on my powerbook to archive my email locally. My email is now stored in a MAIL folder in my home directory and I can access it from any email client. I’m now in the process of migrating my email archive from Eudora to the local server.

Since I have ipfw blocking port 143 to allow local connections only, I built it with “SSLTYPE=unix” to allow plaintext passwords instead of requiring SSL connections for faster access & better compatibility with different email clients.
