All done, or at least I hope so. Guess not many people use Courier webmail - I use roundcube for mine.

thanks! yet another thing:

systemctl start webmaild

times out (but the daemon process is started), because it's looking for the wrong pid file: it looks for /run/courier/, but the daemon creates /run/courier/ I'm not sure, from where it takes that information, but as I just installed courier-mta, I guess it's the default config. Can you please adopt the PIDFile-option in /usr/lib/systemd/system/webmaild.service ?

cheers, deep_thought

I've added it to the depends list.

The build fails during configure with:

... configure: error: libidn not found ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

On a similar host, where libidn is installed (as a dependency of another package), the build succeeds. I guess, you need to add libidn as a depends=() (or possibly only a makedepends?)

The development version has made it to a stable release.

As a temporary workaround I have put up the development version which I have been running with no problems. It generates a "placeholder" message when the client fails to negotiate a fetch of Unicode email, and will get around various email clients failing to handle the error. I can also recommend either that latest Evolution, or emClient for Unicode email handling!

It would be great to have a temporary workaround. The UTF-8 bug is (only) annoying in Thunderbird, but it probably causes other clients (e.g. R2Mail2) to silently fail and ignore new messages.

There is an issue with UTF-8 messages not being displayed by various email readers. I'm currently running a development version which has a workaround and will happily put it up here if anyone else thinks it a good idea.

Enjoy Courier 1.0 - but don't forget to check your maildir names.

For the new Courier package version, I have changed the service files to directly reference "/run" rather than the "/var/run" symlink. This has stopped the PIDFILE problems (I think because the "/var" pathname element is not used) and courier is also reconfigured to use /run for PID files. I have also removed the ExecStartPre lines from the service files, as the "/run/courier" folder is created on installation.
