Server :: Courier Or Dovecot For IMAP?

Mar 18, 2011

Does anyone know if there are only personal preferences between the two IMAP servers or does one of a slight advantage over the other? I've used Dovecot only in the past but my package manager loads tons of MySQL libraries with Dovecot which is a problem since that's not authorized on my server right now. I can either install it from source or try another application like Courier.

CentOS 5 Server :: Courier IMAP Won't Compile To RPM

Dec 19, 2009

how to install Courier IMAP server and they all say the same thing, but they keep giving me problems.URL... is a link to the page I'm working on.I created the user, edited sudoers manually since I can't effectivly use visudo in the terminal since I don't know how to save. I also made sure that I restarted after I edited it in order to make sure it took effect. I used su compileuser and just logging in as compileuser and opening a terminal. After I made the user and edited that file, I created the directory mentioned and ran the command to create .rpmmacros. After that I got to work on wgetting the files and installing them and what not. The first one compiled and installed and so did the last one. The command "rpmbuild -ta courier-imap4.6.0.tar bz2" would not go though properly. This one I need to run as a non-root user and I've tried using every way possible to be as distant from root as possible, but it still gives me this at the end.

Server :: Courier - No Such File Or Directory When Testing IMAP And POP

Jul 28, 2010

Using the following software:
Ubuntu Server 8.04
SquirrelMail 1.4.13
Postfix 2.5.1
Courier 0.59.0 (Courier-IMAP 4.3.1)
Apache2 2.2.8

I've installed a mail server per the instructions at [url].

Neither POP nor IMAP test successfully with the user that I just added after following the setup instructions.

This doesn't make any sense. I added the user to the mysql database:


And after I did that, I ran the postfix reload command. If I try to log in as, which is the user I created during the setup and configuration process, it works fine.

I checked the virtual mail account's home folder, and under the folder, I only see a folder for firstuser. I'd create one for testuser manually, but I don't know if that'll work since it seems to contain a particular folder structure of its own.

Is there some other command that I have to run? I don't recall having to do anything additional when setting up firstuser.

CentOS 5 Server :: Adding Authentication Modules To Courier-imap?

Jun 4, 2011

I am administrating a server with CentOS installed. It came with qmail and courier-imap preinstalled, and Plesk.I need to manually add email accounts outside of Plesk, because my 1-domain Plesk license only allows the creation of one email address (yes, it sucks).

When I say add email account I mean creating a new email address, have email for that address be stored in its maildir, and have a corresponding imap (and hipefully also pop3) account that will be able to read that mail. All this with virtual domains.I've already found out how to create the new email addresses for qmail, so that email for the new email address is being delivered correctly. Now I need to create the imap/pop3 accounts for courier.

For the qmail part, I create a folder in in /var/qmail/mailnames/ and a maildir called Maildir inside it. This is how the first mail address was created by Plesk and i'd like to maintain the same structure. As I've said, the qmail part is already working, I need to get the courier-imap part to work. Ideally, it should accept login with both short (i.e. myuser) and long (i.e. user names.

Currently the only authentication module that is enabled in courier-imap is authpsa, which is Plesk's authentication order to add more authentication modules, do I just need to add them to the authentication module list in /etc/courierimap/imapd, or do I need to reinstall courier-imap with support for such authentication modules? I thought I would only need to add them to the list, but I've noticed that the /usr/lib/courier-imap/authlib/ folder only contains a binary called "authpsa". Does that mean that other authentication modules are not even installed? If so, can I install them without reinstalling courier?

The second question is, what would be the most recommended authentication module that would make it easiest to create new email addresses/accounts from the command line? I need to be able to write a shell scripts capable of creating a new email address with all that is needed, and I'd like to keep this script as simple as possible, so for example I'd avoid mysql-based authentication as it sounds rather complicated. And the last question is, if I do need to reinstall courier-imap, how can I install a package without recompiling it? Will my one existing mailbox keep working?

Server :: Cant Receive Mails In Inbox When Configured With Sendmail

Oct 22, 2010

I installed sendmail in my fedora 7 system. i took the advice as provided in this url [url] I started with "Configuring s`endmail"

Then i went with installing MailScanner without going to clamav and spamassasin installation as i don need it.

I just configured my local domain and assigned a my own IP address. But there was nothing mentioned with configuring the port number. So i just went with "netstat -nl" command. And it showed that my IP is lisening on port 53.

I created 2 users for the domain and i sent mail via telnet. The mail entry got entered in maillog file. But i receive multiple unwanted entries that mail is sent from "root" to "root". But i didn't bother about that.

I proceeded with the next step of configuring the two users on thunderbird. I configured with pop3 on port 53 with the localdomain. Now i sent mail from one user to the other. The mail entry got stored in maillog but i couldn't retrieve the mail on my inbox.

But the mail gets stored in /var/mail/<user>

Server :: Send And Receive E-mails To And From An Array Of Virtual Domains?

Jan 4, 2010

I've set up a fully functional e-mail server and can send and receive e-mails to and from an array of virtual domains without a problem. The only hiccup I have is that only root is able to send e-mails via mutt. I have not stipulated a sendmail line in the mutt configuration so it's sending e-mail with default configuration. How can I get it so that all users on the server can send outgoing e-mails via mutt?

Software :: Courier IMAP Functionality - Delete W/o Marking - Similar To Gmail IMAP ?

Apr 23, 2010

I've been running Courier IMAP for many years now, but when I added gmail's IMAP to my Outlook I noticed something interesting: when you delete a message, it gets thrown into the trash instantly.

With Courier IMAP (or any other IMAP server, for that matter), when you delete, it first marks it for deletion. Then after you Purge Deleted Messages it either gets rid of them or moves them to trash.

Is there a way to implement this in Courier IMAP?

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 :: Reject_unknown_recipient_domain For Courier Mail Server

Feb 4, 2010

Im looking for a way to block emails that come into the mail server for users that are no longer on the domain. I see a lot of messages in the maillog for emails coming in for people that are no longer active users on the domain.


Using spamassassin if that matters.

Using Active Directory on a windows server.

I found postfix uses this "reject_unknown_recipient_domain" in /etc/postfix/ but I am unsure where this would be used in courier.

Ive seen some hints here. But not sure how to adapt this for domain users.
