Response to: IMAP is BUILT in to 10.2

I've checked on three different machines, all of which are clean installs of Jaguar (at various times over the last week). There's no imapd in the /usr/libexec/imapd folder from the factory. Yes, the /etc/inetd.conf file is configured to use /usr/local/libexec/imapd but that doesn't mean anything. Also note that at the top of the inetd.conf file is a note that items with double hashes are not yet implmeneted in the OS. I couldn't tell you if this is an Apple comment, or one that came along for the rid

If I could have used a built in imap, I would have.

As it is, I'm curious as to how you have a working imapd by simply changing your inetd.conf file. Are you sure you've got a clean install that hasn't had things installed by other people or toolsets?
