I've finally been able to have some time to take a look at this. It turns
out that in updating the README.cygwin.txt that was in the original port
that this is based off of, I had removed at least one critical step:
(1) Make sure the following lines exist in your /etc/passwd file:
(The important points are that Everyone have uid 0 and SYSTEM must
have UID 18.)
In the next release that I hope to have out soon, I will put the original
documentation that I had removed back into place.
I encountered the same problem as you when I did a fresh install of cygwin
on an XP Pro box that didn't have any cygwin on it before. After adding an
EVERYONE line as noted above, it worked fine.
i tried the actual cygwin version and setup the uw-imap according the
documentation. The server is running but it allways refused the connection
for a client. A telnet to the server bring up this error :
* BYE [ALERT] IMAP4rev1 server crashing: Unable to look up user name
I am using Win2K and the cygwin version 5.0 1.3.22(0.78/3/2)
the uw-imapd package has the version uw-imapd-2002d-1
Does somebody know this problem ?
Is it a cygwin problem or a imapd problem?
