Presently I am facing one problem earlier I configured dovecot as
my IMAP server but now I want to migrate it to courier-IMAP.(cause
I find maildir has some advantage over mbox format.)
I have a RHEL(AS)-4 system. I was trying to install courier-IMAP for
So I downloaded the tarball courier-0.53.2.tar.bz2 and courier-
authlib-0.58.tar.bz2 from the website.

At first I tried to install the courier-authlib-0.58.tar.bz2 as a
normal user but it is not getting installed.When I run make install
it is generating some error.

Steps I have done,
#su alice
$bunzip2 courier-authlib-0.58.tar.bz2
$tar -xvf courier-authlib-0.58.tar
$cd courier-authlib-0.58
$./configure with redhat switch
$make install-------error is coming right after this.
Plese help me out.

PS. Is it possible to have maildir format with dovecot-IMAP. Why I am keen on
maildir format because I want to put my mails in shared storage. If I use mbox
it may give me some locking issue.

Hi Subo!

You need to be more specific when describing your problem. Unless someone has compiled the program exactly as you did, it is unlikely that most people will know what "with redhat switch" means. Also, when saying things like "error is coming right after this", then the logical conclusion is "something went wrong". Obviously, that isn't very helpful to finding the solution. What error you get is naturally a key aspect of solving the problem. It could be anything from permissions problems to missing libraries. Alas, we do not know what that error was, so it is close to impossible to provide an answer.

Don't forget that Google is your friend. I have had many cases where I tried to compile something and had problems, then I searched on Google for the exact error message I got and found the exact solution to my problem.
