= Courier, Courier-IMAP =
Courier by default uses "INBOX." as private IMAP namespace, so it has exactly the same problems as described with UW-IMAP above. Again, if you want the migration to be transparent for IMAP clients, see ["Namespaces"] how to set namespaces to be Courier-compatible.

 * Courier's {{{courierimapsubscribed}}} is compatible with Dovecot's {{{subscriptions}}} file, just rename it and remove the "INBOX." prefixes. (NOTE: with 0.99.x it's {{{.subscriptions}}}, with 1.0 it's {{{subscriptions}}} without the dot)
 * Courier's {{{courierimapuiddb}}} is compatible with Dovecot's {{{dovecot-uidlist}}} file, just rename it.
 * Courier's message flags are compatible with Dovecot (as they are specified by the Maildir specification)
 * Courier's message keywords implementation isn't Dovecot compatible and there is currently no easy way to migrate them.

For POP3 UIDL compatibility with Courier, the Dovecot configuration depends on the Courier version used:

 Courier version 0:: {{{
# Courier version 0 (using maildir filenames)
pop3_uidl_format = %f}}}
 Courier version 1:: {{{
# Courier version 1 (UID)
pop3_uidl_format = %u}}}
 Courier version 2 and early Courier version 3:: {{{
# Courier version 2 (UIDVALIDITY and UID - you most likely want this)
pop3_uidl_format = %v-%u}}}
 Courier version 3 (younger versions):: Here everything has changed: Courier's UID data are now stored in{{{courierpop3dsizelist}}}and in a completely new format. But it's still possible to convert it to the format dovecot needs (link to perlscript and further configuration details will follow later).
