Ubuntu :: Retrieve Email By POP3 Via IMAP To Home Server?

Feb 16, 2011

I want to retrieve emails from my POP3 servers to my home server. But from there, I want to be able to access them via IMAP from my other computers, i.e. desktop, laptop, phone. And then of course I want to be able to send emails from said devices via IMAP to my home server which POP3's them out to my mail servers. Basically, I have a few POP3 accounts with various hosts and I want to conveniently interact with them from lots of devices using my preferred software (i.e. Mutt, or Thunderbird on my Windows boxes). My home server is Ubuntu Server if that's relevant.

I would like to change an email account from POP3 to IMAP on an ISPConfig 2 system, I can see that the IMAP and POP3 process are both running.

Server :: Limiting POP3/IMAP Access Frequency?

Sep 24, 2010

My server listens to POP3/IMAP requests. Some users have configured their mailers with high checking frequencies, say once every minute, such that the system logs are full of entries with no significance at all.I'd like to ask if there is a way to limit the per IP frequency of POP3/IMAP access ?I'm using "xinetd" to wrap the "ipop3d" and "imapd" which come with the Alpine package.

Ubuntu Servers :: Configure A POP3 / IMAP Proxy Server?

Jan 25, 2011

This is my first post to the forum

I've recently migrated my office PCs to ubuntu. My server doesn't server any big purpose but to provide Internet Connection to the rest of the nodes. Things were quite easier during the windows era using ICS.

Even in Ubuntu we were able to do it using the "shared network" option, simple & straight forward. But things got complicated only after installing "squid". Needless to say it brought in a lot of add ons as far as the http proxy serving is concerned & we are enjoying a better internet(http only) connectivity without any doubt. But we are not able to use our email clients, MS Outlook or Thunderbird

But to best of my knowledge squid strictly is a http proxy hence doesn't support handling requests on ports other than 80. (465 & 995 in my case)

Now I have two queries, 1. Can "Squid" really be used to do what I want here??? using iptables, port forwarding or any other mean
& 2. Can any one suggest a good pop3/imap proxy as good as squid is.

Fedora Networking :: Setup A Single Imap Server To Pop3 Service ?

Mar 31, 2010

My actual mail is via pop3 from verizon. What I've done so far is just pull my pop3 mail onto my main machine at my house. But I'm finding I'd rather have a single imap server on my network so then all my machines could see the same mail.

I don't really want the imap server to poll verizon for mail, I just want the imap server to check pop3 mail at verizon only when one of my mail apps checks into it to look for mail.

General :: Setup A Functioning Imap And Pop3 Mail Server Using Dovecot-postfix?

May 4, 2010

I'm somewhat familiar with Linux and became pretty decent at installing and configuring packages in Ubuntu. One of the things I was able to do with my tinkering was set up a functioning imap and pop3 mail server using dovecot-postfix. Now I'm experimenting with Slackware to get the feel of another distro, and I noticed that the mail server packages were already installed. On my client computer they can pick up that I have users configured and my mx record is working.

However it is failing to send mail saying that it is failing to relay the e-mail message and that the server responded 5.7.1 which was a problem that I was having in Ubuntu when first configuring the mail server. The fix was to edit the postfix.conf file and adding the localhost name of my server. Does anybody know of the file that I need to edit to make it possible to relay my messages with both pop3 and imap.

CentOS 5 :: Open Port For Secure Imap And Smtp ?

Apr 16, 2011

The server I'm running is virtually stock CentOS - it's running on a xen virtual host, started as CentOS 5.1 (32 bit) when that was fresh, it's at 5.5 now and updated nightly. All packages except postgresql and php are from CentOS and EPEL.

I'm running dovecot on it, and for long time, squirrelmail connecting via localhost was good enough. All external ports were firewalled by the CentOS firewall (just 25,80,443,custom ssh are currently open).

Now I need to allow an external imap client to connect.

I have generated ssl key and configured the dovecot configuration and it should be good to go, but gosh dangit, I can't remember how to open the port in the configuration.

I did it before when I set up ssh to run on a non standard port after I got sick of constant brute force attack on port 22, but I can't recall what I did and the various tutorials I find online all tell how to do it with the GUI tool, but I don't have any GUI stuff installed.


Is I'm pretty sure what I used to open up my custom > 1024 ssh port, but I can't remember how I used it to open that port and it doesn't seem intuitive. Also, do I need to use 993? I'd almost rather use something custom above 1024, as long as thunderbird supports it (don't care about any other mail client)

Finally, my smtp server is postfix and port 25 is already open (but not an open relay, I check it about every 3 months). For requests to send mail from a client, I would really like some authentication of some type - as in only relays for IP addresses that have recently successfully logged in the secure imap port.

Server :: Server Configuration For Small Office Server, Which Smtp, Pop Imap Server And Backup?

Apr 2, 2010

I have installed a linux server in my office to run 16 machines. Its main use will be a internal mail server but will be also running websites.

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 server x64 and have got apache running.

I am looking for the simplest more robust solution for smtp, pop3 and imap. I have only ever used qmail before and found it a pain to configure and its getting old so I though I should probably try something new. I have not much experience with running pop3 or imap on linux so would love a suggestion on that.

Server :: Do Smtp/pop/imap Servers Work With Dynamic Ips

Sep 30, 2010

i want to set up an email server both to receive and send emails. I also am on a dynamic ip scheme with my ISP. I do have a dynamic dns account with no-ip.org the Questions are:

-will somebody be able to send emails to me at the <user>@<dyndns_name>.no-ip.org email address?

-will I be able to send emails from the <user>@<dyndns_name>.no-ip.org email address?

I know i'll be able to login to accounts like gmail and yahoo and download emails from there.. but even that i don't know - even macroscopically how its done:

-is it the sendmail deamon that accepts the mail from <me>@gmail.com, <me>@yahoo.com, <me>@<dyndns_name>.no-ip.org?

-is it the sendmail deamon that does the sending of email (as well)?

-can it push emails that I want to send as <me>@gmail.com to the gmail smtp servers (and they in turn will push my email even further)?

-can it push emails from <me>@<dyndns_name>.no-ip.org to receipients?
and finally,

-WILL receiving pop/imap servers allow incoming email from my server? or due to the dynamic ip they'll assume I'm a spam server?

CentOS 5 :: Dovecot/pop3 Email Service Following File System Restoration?

Sep 11, 2009

I am trying to prepare procedures for email restoration following a file system loss that contained user Maildir directories. Assuming that my most recent backup is earlier than the last time that many users received and downloaded email, the restored mail directories will not contain messages that were previously received and downloaded to clients following the backup and preceding the crash. This is not a problem in itself, however, it does appear to cause problems for the email clients.

My desire would be for email clients (outlook, outlook express, thunderbird) to properly recognize the messages that currently exist on the server, ignore previously downloaded messages and download newly arriving messages.The behavior that I am seeing is that the email client fails to recognize that any new messages exist and fails to download any messages at all. By removing the dovecot.index... files and the uidlist file, the clients will download ALL messages that are present in the "new" and "cur" directories even if previously downloaded. This is also an undesirable outcome.

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Gmail In Evolution: Imap Or Pop3?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm trying to set up my gmail account with Evolution. I am trying to set up a mail client where -

1) All the mails are stored locally, so that I can work offline. When I reconnect, the client (Evolution) syncs with the server - sends emails and updates any changes.

2) All the labels/folder system to be respected and retained.

After struggling with various sites that argued Pop3 and IMAP (numerous blogs and google searches), I came across this conclusion (pls correct them if they are wrong)-

1) Pop3 allows mails to be stored locally, but will not break them up into folders.

2) IMAP will allow the folder system, but will only store the headers of mail on the local server, and the content will be downloaded as per request.

1) Will Pop3 access allow syncing between the local version and the server version? For instance, a mail read in Evolution should be marked as read when I sign into the web-interface as well.(I can always create a filter/rule that replicates gmail filters)

2) Will IMAP allow me to store all mail locally (isn't this exactly what IMAP is not!)? The combination of imap-gmail-evolution was not so successful when I tried it out - too slow!

PS: I would prefer Evolution over Thunderbird so that I can integrate the Calendar. However, if ThunderBird is the easiest solution, then it's fine too...

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't POP3 - IMAP Into Gmail / Enable This?

Aug 7, 2011

I'm trying to connect to Gmail to pull my emails from the Gmail site, via the IMAP/POP3 access server. However, I can't seem to connect to the server when in Ubuntu code...

And it hangs here indefinitely. However, if I reboot my PC into Windows, it connects fine. I've turned off UFW so I would expect the connection to work. I've also been able to POP3 into other servers, so it seems to be something specific to the gmail IP.

Anyone else had the same problem or know how I can debug/fix this?

Server :: Sendmail Not Forwarding Email To Domain's SMTP?

Apr 9, 2010

I have a server "test1" in domain [URL]. I installed sendmail on it. I have another mail server "mailsrv" installed in [URL] which is my primary mail server and contains all accounts and mailboxes. Now when I send email to [URL] from [URL] it sends successfully. But when I try to mail to user1@abc.com it tries to search user1 in [URL] but I want it to forward this mail to mailsrv.abc.com over SMTP port. Delivery will then be taken care by [URL]

My log shows following

Software :: Email Settings: Which Config File Identifies The Smtp Server

Dec 9, 2010

I have a recent install of Fedora14, and wanted to have outbound email sent to a smtp server elsewhere on the local network. I found the System->Preferences->Email Settings app and created a mail account with an smtp server. Now I am able to use mailx, mutt, and sendmail -- all send email correctly to the external server.

But I don't like being reliant on the GUI apps and wanted to know how this was done -- what system config files were affected. Assuming that my "smtp.xxx.com" server should show up somewhere, I grepped /home, /etc, and /var, but can't find it anywhere. On a whim I went into Evolution, deleted the mail account, and rebooted, but email STILL works. Where is this configured?
