Create a new IMAP mail account in Mail.app.


Account Information tab:
Incoming mail server: 127.0.0.1
User name: {your Mac's login name}
Password: {your login password}
Outgoing Mail Server: 127.0.0.1 (Options...Server Port: 25, SSL is unchecked, Authentication: None, User Name: (blank), Password: (blank))


Advanced tab:
Account Directory: ~/Library/Mail
IMAP Path Prefix: Mail/
Port: 993
Use SSL
Authentication: Password


Install IMAP, if you haven't already done this.
curl ftp://ftp.cac.washington.edu/imap/imap.tar.Z > imap.tar.Z
uncompress imap.tar.Z
tar xf imap.tar
sudo mv imap-2002a /usr/local/share
sudo chown -R root /usr/local/share/imap-2002a
cd /usr/local/share/imap-2002a
sudo make clean osx SSLTYPE=unix EXTRACFLAGS=-DDISABLE_REVERSE_DNS_LOOKUP (say y to warning)
sudo cp /usr/local/share/imap-2002a/imapd/imapd /usr/local/bin/imapd
sudo chown root /usr/local/bin/imapd/imapd
sudo chmod a-w /usr/local/bin/imapd/imapd


sudo mkdir -p /System/Library/OpenSSL/certs
sudo openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out \
/System/Library/OpenSSL/certs/imapd.pem -keyout \
/System/Library/OpenSSL/certs/imapd.pem -days 3650


(enter relevant info at prompts)


Modify inetd.conf file:
sudo pico /etc/inetd.conf


Add the following lines to end of file:
imap stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/imapd imapd
imaps stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/imapd imapd


Save and exit.


You should now be able to check your unix mailbox from Mail.app.
