I want to configure dovecot as gmail imap proxy. If any system in my network wants to connect to imap.gmail.com,993 it has to go through the dovecot proxy.

Is it possible to setup such environment with dovecot? If yes, can you please help me to configure my dovecot server.

Warm Regards

Supratik

I installed imapproxy in a RHEL 5.3 system, but not able to configure it properly. Can you please help me to configure my proxy server. I am also not able to find any good documentation on it. –  Supratik Jan 15 '10 at 11:13
    
I checked with all possibilities and finally came to know that imapproxy do not support imaps (993) which is used by imap.gmail.com. Can you please suggest any other imap proxy which will support imaps (993) –  Supratik Jan 15 '10 at 15:37

imapproxy does not support secure IMAP, port 993; which is required by Gmail. You need Perdition for that, here is a clue: http://www.dataparadis.net/osp/gnu-linux-server/proxy-server/gmail-imap-proxy-imapproxy-perdition/
