Here we go again....
OK. I agree this is weird but I am betting that it has something to do
with the wildcard changes that breaks netscape4 profiles for IMAP4
Here's the scenario.
Server : Solaris 2.5.1
Problem : Netscape 4.05 configured as an IMAP4 client
Client OS Samba version work
--------- ------------- ----
Win98 1.9.19alpha no
WinNT4.0 1.9.19alpha no
WinNT4.0 1.9.18p7 yes
Win98 1.9.18p7 yes
Win98 1.9.18p4 yes
I can go into details if anyone wishes. The general idea problem is
that netscape does not open the INBOX in /var/mail but rather looks for
inbox in whatever the remote mail folder directory is set to.
The log files ( at debug level 10...I can get high if neccessary ) are
respectively and are from a run on WinNT4.0 Wks against 1.9.19alpha
share and a 1.9.18p7 share.
Just to clarify, Netscape **is** installed local to the PC and the
netscape profile is located on the samba share ( ie. [homes] ).
BTW....Things like 'cd the_*' work great! Thanks.
