Description MAL 2005-03-06 04:33:37 UTC
You can't control whether webmaild is started by the courier init script.

IMO there should be an /etc/conf.d/courier file to control this.  courierfilter could be toggled there too.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Mass re-assign, seems like mail-mta/courier needs a maintainer. 
Comment 2 MAL 2005-07-28 06:10:16 UTC
Hope you don't mind me assigning this to you, just until there's someone 
maintaining courier again.
Comment 3 Brian Jackson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-28 06:32:02 UTC
I told Jakub to reassign all the courier stuff to me, I didn't even notice in
the flurry of emails that he just cc'ed me. I intend on maintaining courier. I
used to handle it back in the day, and I still use it at home and my server.
Comment 4 Brian Jackson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-02 08:43:41 UTC
Okay, so I was pretty sure I already did this, but must have been lost somewhere. I'm working on this locally (along with some other things), it'll be a while till I get a solution I'm happy with.

Re-assign wrt Bug 22511
Comment 6 Bernd Wurst 2008-04-21 13:25:03 UTC
It would be great if this could be done, for sure.

But the new versions of the courier ebuild (commited recently) allow not to install webmail and/or webadmin, so the lack of tunable configuration is not that bad.
Comment 7 Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2019-01-16 13:07:01 UTC
Controllable by use-flag, so we can consider this obsolete.
