Possibly a silly question

Hey All,

I have what is possibly a really dumb question.  However I haven't been 
able to figure it out, in fact I am not sure I am even looking in the 
correct place.

I use OpenBSD 3.4 and am using popa3d as a pop3 server.  Let me explain 
my situation first so that everyone understands my problem.

Here is my SMTP -> user setup:

-> POSTFIX -> Procmail -> SpamAssassin -> Procmail -> $HOME/Mailbox 
(this all works fine)

My problem is getting popa3d to check mail there.  I am not sure why it 
isn't.  Can someone help me?

Do I need to recompile popa3d with a different spool dir?  This is what 
I think I need to do, but not sure.

Thanks in advance,

Curt Micol

I'd appreciate informative message subjects in the future.  Thanks.

Yes, you do.  You need to edit params.h here:

/*
 * Your mail spool directory. Note: only local (non-NFS) mode 775 mail
 * spools are currently supported.
 *
 * #undef this for qmail-style $HOME/Mailbox mailboxes.
 */
#define MAIL_SPOOL_PATH                 "/var/mail"

You change the "#define ..." to "#undef MAIL_SPOOL_PATH".

You can do that either with the popa3d in the OpenBSD base tree, or
you can download popa3d off its homepage and build a separate copy.

mac os x 10.2


i am attempting to compile popa3d on mac os x 10.2.

i don't see a /etc/shadow file, and i do see a /etc/pam.d file.  this 
leads me to believe that pam is used and shadow passwords are not.

however, both shadow.h and the security/*.h files are missing from my 
dev tools include dirs.

any help appreciated.

thanks
