probably a fringe use case, but I'm trying to set up Mercury for my personal local (on the same machine only) IMAP use. It is not supposed to retrieve or send any mail from or to or in any other way talk to the outside world at all.
The absolutely only task is to provide an IMAP server that can be accessed by an email client on the same machine to move messages to the IMAP folders for archival purposes.
ATM this only includes email from an external Exchange account. I might include other accounts in the future, but that is not a subject for now.
I installed the MercuryI, W and X modules. No idea whether W and X are of any use in my case, but those were the only additional 2 modules I could not rule out immediately.
Since I don't own a domain or any static (or DYNDNS) IP address, I tried to set the domain in the initial configuration to 127.0.0.1 (for lack of a better idea), but now I'm at a loss and don't know how to proceed any further.
I could not find any instructions regarding my use case in the manual or in the FAQ of this forum.
I'm using the Windows 10 stock mail application. I don't want to change that, for the app's seamless Exchange integration. Unfortunately, I also don't know how to configure an email client to use an IMAP server running on the same machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
