DavMail CLI-only on a Seagate Dockstar running Debian

So I have Debian Squeeze running on a Seagate Dockstar… you can google around for this distro running on a 4-watt embedded device — I’m not going to explain it here.

I wanted to get DavMail running on it, so I went to install java packages. I ended up installing default-jre. But I had to update the package lists first — I ended up with some 404s on package names that had been renamed since my last update.

DavMail uses Java.SWT graphical elements by default. By setting davmail.server=true you can run it without an X11 display. All other items in your .davmail.properties can be default.
