Default Movemail not getting emails

I am using thunderbird & Lenny. I have a Movemail account setup for my
local user. It is set to get emails every X minutes. Doesn't do
anything. I have to right-click the account folder, and select Get-messages.

Mmm... check this bug:

***
Unix Mailspool never retrieves new mail by time delay or during startup
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=480945
***

There is a workaround in comment #13

no joy.. I added that entry, restarted thunderbird, still not getting
emails from local host. ALSO, when I DO get emails, the filters don't
run, some DO, some DON'T.. say I issues the "get messages" command, and
get 27 emails. the ibox will go down to say 6 unread. When I go to
tools- run message filters, the rest go to the filtered folders.. I was
starting to add duplicate filters for the same content ( xxx-debian-1,
xxx-debian-2...) until I realized it just wasn't running them.

Try by enabling the filter's log to see what is going on.

Just out of curiosity... why are you using a "movemail" account? As you
are running Dovecot, wouldn't be better to select standard "imap"? :-?

I do have an IMAP local user account AND a movemail account... I was
trying to migrate TO IMAP from pop/local user /var/mail..

No that I know... I was just asking the why of your setup :-)

I can see the use of Movemail accounts when no imap/pop3 server is
running locally (i.e., using fetchmail to drop remote e-mails under your
local mailbox) but having your own server, I see no good reason to keep
that setup, unless you explicitely need it for some special feature, so I
asked.

Yep, that was what I thought by reading your last e-mails ;-)

Question is... are you going to keep the old method for storing e-mails?
If yes, you'll need to put the auto-checking feature working. If not,
just let it be... anyway, it should be fixed in upcoming Thunderbird
releases.

my setup is confused... migrated from too many different
accounts/account types..

I'm trying to simplify things... IMAP seems like THE ANSWER

yes, I noticed that in that web site you mentioned before.. What i want
to do is use my local IMAP account to bring in all my emails, and have
all my filtered folders in that IMAP account. That way I can use a
laptop to connect to my IMAP account, get all my emails via IMAP and
have access to them on the laptop. This method I figured out while I was
sitting home in a special boot for my foot, and the laptop was easier to
use than hobbling to another room & getting to my desktop..

So, do you still need that "movemail" account? Maybe if you clarify your
current accounts/setup status we can get the full picture better :-)

well, when I removed it, I stopped getting my local user email, and
/var/mail/local_user started growing, so I had no way to read it, except
enable the Movemail account ( FOR NOW..). I have dovecot & postfix set
to enable Maildir & IMAP, but it doesn't seem to be working..
dovecot log shows:
2010-11-07 12:15:45 IMAP(pbc): Info: Disconnected in IDLE bytes=181/6886
2010-11-07 12:16:08 dovecot: Info: Dovecot v1.2.15 starting up (core
dumps disabled)
2010-11-07 12:16:25 imap-login: Info: Login: user=<pbc>, method=PLAIN,
rip=127.0.0.1, lip=127.0.0.1, secured
2010-11-07 12:16:35 imap-login: Info: Login: user=<pbc>, method=PLAIN,
rip=127.0.0.1, lip=127.0.0.1, secured

so dovecot is working, but postfix keeps sending emails to /var/mail/USER .

# grep Maildir /etc/postfix/main.cf
home_mailbox = Maildir/

Please post the output of 'postconf -n'
