More essential software for a home linux server



Time to (re)install an IMAP server on the home server. Using

mu
tt
-f {homeserver}inbox

is much nicer than the
m
ail -f
~/ImapFolders/inbox


uw-imapd - remote mail folder acc
ess server


While the debian package will create its own certificate, take a look
at my old
note at how to create a self signed certificate for IMAP
.




squid also needed a little configuration to allow for the Using
ssh to pierce corporate firewalls
hack.

In /etc/squid.conf, add a line like this:


http_port 127.0.0.1:3128


Now this works again:


ssh -f -C -L 8080:127.0.0.1:3128 -l marc 192.168.1.200 sleep 1000
