Of course you can use too up2date or apt to do so.

Once the dovecot package is installed you can configure it by editing ''/etc/dovecot.conf''. The default configuration has the POP3 protocol disabled and only IMAP enabled. The default storage format is mbox and as INBOX the file ''/var/spool/mail/$USER'' is used.

{{{
cd $HOME
mv $(cat .mailboxlist) ./mail/
mv .mailboxlist ./mail/.subscriptions
}}}
