    What do you mean 'doesn't work'. There must be some symptoms? If you tell us what you're seeing, we might be able to suggest a solution. If you're trying to install from souce, then you might find it easier to install the binary package using yum, or one of the GUI package managers kyum or yumex.

    Currently I use Dovecot for my IMAP, but you need a functioning mail system to put your IMAP system on top of.

    You do know that double-posting is against the rules. It's also bloody annoying. Maybe if you'd taken the time to read the rules before posting (as suggested) I'd be more willing to help you.

    Im sorry.

    I tried Cyrus IMAP but the software im going to use works better with Courier IMAP.
    I torrented 2 packages, Package: Courier authentication library and Package: Courier-IMAP because i could not run Courier without the authlib file. I managed till ./configure only, when i tried 'make' it gave error. Here's wat I did for courier authlib:
    [priti@hedkandi courier-authlib-0.59.3]$ ./configure
    ...
    configure: WARNING: -----------------------------------------------------
    configure: WARNING: expect not found - will not be able to change passwds
    configure: WARNING: in webmail
    configure: WARNING:
    ...
    checking for crypt() prototype... 0
    Cannot obtain information for groupid 500: Success
    [priti@hedkandi courier-authlib-0.59.3]$ make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

    Heres the link to Courier-IMAP
