Chapter 29. Creating a Mail Server > University of Washington imapd

University of Washington imapd

Sendmail makes up only part of the mail-server picture. Although Sendmail handles sending and receiving e-mail on the server side, it does not have any provisions for the client software, such as Eudora or Outlook Express. To provide e-mail for remote clients, Mac OS X will need an IMAP server, a POP3 server, or both. Thankfully, the University of Washington has created an easy-to-install software package that will kill two birds with one stone.

The UW imapd server is capable of handling both IMAP and POP3 traffic and it is already Mac OS X–aware, so it takes very little work to install. Even better, there is absolutely no configuration file for the software, so after it's installed, it's ready to use.
