IMAP, unlike its predecessor POP, is designed so that the "master" home of the email is on the server. Anything that may be stored by the IMAP client (whether it's Thunderbird or a webmail client or anything else) is treated as a cache for what's on the server. As such, it is completely discardable and non-valuable. If Thunderbird doesn't manage it well and ...

You can download imapsyncto achieve this IIRC. At least you can archive directory onto another remote imap account.

While it is possible to do this unnatural thing you are asking for (i.e. rerunning dovecot local delivery on messages in a Maildir folder to force reprocessing of those messages by Sieve), the "elegant approach" would be getting rid of Popfile altogether and replacing it with spamassassin for spam detection and Sieve scripts for the rest of your sorting ...

I'm afraid that according to the docs you're out of luck trying to make it work with Postfix: Postfix currently does not apply content filters to mail that is forwarded or aliased internally, or to mail that is generated internally such as bounces or Postmaster notifications. This may be a problem when you want to apply a signing Milter to such mail.

I think I actually worked it out. I found this page in the Dovecot documentation (not well highlighted I must admit! I completely missed the tab at the top of the page): http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Upgrading/2.0?highlight=%28unix_listener%29 I reverted to the original code block originally documented on the website: protocol lda { log_path = ...

I was able to fix my problem by changing the postfix main.cf configuration to read: smtpd_relay_restrictions = permit_mynetworks permit_sasl_authenticated defer_unauth_destination instead of using smtpd_recipient_resrictions It turns out that after postfix 2.10.0, smtpd_relay_restrictions should be used instead of ...

Nearly all services with authentication can work with LDAP while this isn't the case for SQL databases. So if you are not sure all your services can work with MySQL or PostgreSQL, chose LDAP.

Option a) Reinstall the package, and immediately afterwards remove it. Option b) tweak the post-rm script file so that it does not call doveconf. Option c) tweak doveconf itself so it is a clone of /bin/true.

You haven't define appropriate listeners for protocols. Try to begin from the single-file config like that: ## Dovecot configuration file mail_location = maildir:/var/mail/%d/%n protocols = imap pop3 listen = * mail_uid = mailnull mail_gid = mail first_valid_uid = 26 ...

From the Dovecot documentation: When Dovecot starts up for the first time, it generates new 512bit and 1024bit Diffie Hellman parameters and saves them into /var/lib/dovecot/ssl-parameters.ssl. After the initial creation they're by default regenerated every week. Most likely this is the case.

Your line from the log file and your regex differ in the word after dovecot. Your log has the term dict, but your regex has the term auth instead. So you want to adjust your rule maybe to the following: ^\w{3} [ :[:digit:]]{11} [._[:alnum:]-]+ dovecot: (dict|auth): pgsql\([[:digit:]]{1,3}\.[[:digit:]]{1,3}\.[[:digit:]]{1,3}\.[[:digit:]]{1,3}\): Connected to ...

I would expect it needs the < to tell it to set the config value to the contents of the file instead of to the actual string /etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem (which obviously isn't a valid SSL certificate).

Maybe you have the disable_plaintext_auth directive set somewhere in your configuration.

I would suggest you to make a backup of your email messages in the maildir format, (a single individual file for each message). You could save them as either EML or PDF. For security you could compress and encrypt them using the ZIP format, one ZIP file for each message because of the following: Why single files. They are easy to move around, copy ...

Secure password authentication in outlook express uses Windows NTLM/Kerberos auth. Is in not simple SSL/TLS. Do not enable it on linux unless you have GSSAPI/Kerberos configured. Error 0x800CCC18 => http://support.microsoft.com/kb/202061 Reason is simple, you can not use secured login on unsecured connection. Turn off "Log on using secure password ...

The problem is with openssl, not dovecot. There is a bug in openssl which stops it looking for the default CApath, so you need to tell it where to find the list of root CA certs by adding -CApath to your command line. For example: sudo openssl s_client -connect localhost:143 -starttls imap -CApath /dev/null If you have not populated your certs folder ...
