@rpodgorny, you should have this directory from when you install the package for the first time, nevertheless, I fixed it with the same version to avoid others users to reinstall.

thanks a lot! ...still: now shadow service crashes with:

user 'courier': directory '/var/spool/courier' does not exist

...i don't know what the correct way to handle this would be but i think using "-" as home directory for courier user in sysusers.d would be fine.

@rpodgorny, implemented. @andrej, fixed.

Thanks for maintaining this package.

At the moment there’s an urgent problem: authdaemond will not start due to this systemd bug:

authdaemond.service: Permission denied while opening PID file or unsafe symlink chain: /var/run/authdaemon/pid

I’m not sure what the best solution would be, so I’m just dropping a note here, to make troubleshooting easier for others. The only workaround seems to be to start the Courier stuff manually until systemd gets fixed. This affects also courier-imapd. courier-courierfilter works fine though.

please consider using systemd-sysusers instead of the .install trickery:

cat /usr/lib/sysusers.d/courier.conf

u courier 72 - -

g courier 72 - -

...thanks! (sorry for the formatting)

Hi, in PKGBUILD you should quote variables that may contain spaces, in particular $srcdir, $pkgdir and $distfile on lines 32, 57-61, 63, 65 (thrice), 69 and 71. Otherwise the build fails when there are directories that contain spaces. (Learn more at

Prefix variables you introduce (distfile on line 61 of PKGBUILD) with _ to avoid interference with makepkg internals. Alternatively, because they are only used within one function, you can just declare them local instead:
local distfile
for distfile in ...

Nitpicks: spaces and tabs are used inconsistently as indentation in the PKGBUILD, which is a bit ugly. Best to put the checksums on multiple lines to avoid annoying super long lines.


All the best, and thanks for packaging for the AUR!

Hi runnytu, it's not necessary to comment each time you submit a new release. Interested people have enough options to follow packages they want to follow.
