I wasted nearly all day working on getting email switched over to maildirs using Courier and maildrop. That sucked. I ran into several problems and ended up backing out of it to my old config. Not fun.
The main problems: At least with Mozilla, all subfolders were created under Inbox...annoying, but tolerable. Converting mbx format (which I switched to a while back) to maildir is a bitch and I spent WAY too much time doing this. When I finally thought all was set up and working, I would notice that Courier would just crap out and stop responding. This mainly happened when I rapidly switched between folders in Mozilla. Sux. A restart of the service would bring things right back up...but that just should not have happened. I left *most* everything in place, so perhaps I'll look at it again sometime.
Man, I'm really boring.
...but Stacy bought some sweet ass tables today -- one is a largish coffee table (to replace our old crappy one sold in the garage sale) and the other two are smaller end tables. They're really nice black metal ones that take a set of tiles as the surface. They look great in the new living room.
