I've got a seemingly rare setup on my desktop computer: I run a mail server on
my computer which collects mail forwarded from various other servers. My mail
is then collected by kmail, passed through my long list of filters, and
finally separated into various maildir directories under ~/Mail.
Now, when I'm using my laptop, I can access my calendar and contact files
remotely via fish, but there seems to be no easy way to do the same for my
The best way I can think of would be to run an IMAP server on my desktop which
just reads mail from ~/Mail, however I have had a very difficult time getting
this to work. Kmail says that it will play nicely with other mail clients
using the same directories, and the IMAP server should be just like any other
client. I have tried most of the IMAP servers available in the debian
repository (courier, dovecott, cyrus, uw), but no luck.
Has anybody else gotten something like this to work, or have you found an
alternate solution to remotely accessing your desktop mail files?
