This section describes using the web-based POP and IMAP mailbox servers
configuration utility, which may be used to configure mailbox servers
for a PMDF-MTA system. A command line variant,
mailbox_servers, is also available for sites for whom web
configuration is not convenient. The web-based configuration utility
may be used to generate an initial mailbox servers configuration, or
may be used to generate a new mailbox servers configuration of an
existing PMDF installation.
localhostis the TCP/IP name of your PMDF system---you should see a page such as shown in Figure 5-3---and then select the "Configuration" link; at this point you should see a page such as shown in Figure 5-4.
If your last use of the web-based PMDF configuration utility was to configure PMDF-MTA and your PMDF-MTA configuration has not been manually modified since then, you can "Load" your prior PMDF-MTA configuration session before beginning your mailbox servers configuration; or if you want to redo your PMDF-MTA configuration, you may start by doing so now; either will minimize the number of checklist tasks you will later need to perform. Otherwise, you may configure just the mailbox servers during this configuration sessions (and then perform checklist tasks to integrate your mailbox server configuration into your main PMDF-MTA configuration).
Click on the "Configure" button for IMAP/POP Servers to begin the configuration.
Refer to Chapter 5, specifically to Figures 5-9 through Figure 5-15, for a sample configuration session.
