    The hosting company that I host with uses a mbox mail store. I would like to use the Maildir mail store so I can organize my emails in a folder hierarchy.

    Is it possible for me to be use a Maildir mail store while the rest of the user are using the old mbox mail store?

    What about using a procmail script like the following?

    SHELL=/usr/bin/bash
    MAILDIR=${HOME}/Maildir/

    :0:
    ${DEFAULT}


    I really appreciate all your help!

    Thanks,
    Zach

    Go on, have a guess
    I don't think it would work because it's not what the IMAP daemon will be expecting. It's going to be an either/or situation I would think.

    Yeah, that’s what I guessed.

    I'm sure you must be very busy, so I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my question.

    Thanks,
    Zach
