    Hi all,

    Due to security issues I want to disable the IMAPD untill a stable solution of the problem is found, because the posts here sasys that the chance to upgrade sucssesfly is about 50%. When I disable the IMAPD the HORDE and SQMAIL stops to work.

    Is there a way to run the WEBMAIL without IMAP support ?

    Thanks in advance for help

    Evgeny

    No, but you could simply block all inbound traffic to the server in an iptables firewall to ports 143 and 993 which would have the same effect and you can then leave IMAP running.

    Follow Webhostgear's How to install APF (Advanced Policy Firewall) and this time do not include ports 143 and 993 to block off access to IMAP

    Yup. Or if you just want to do it for those ports directly using iptables:

    iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --source-port 143 -j DROP
    iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --source-port 993 -j DROP

    Shame... Shame... Shame...

    I think Cpanel should have alerted users that maildir is BETA.
