I have installed RoundCube a couple of years ago on a Snow Leopard server. All nice and dandy up to today.


Sieve has stopped working and I have spent hours and been unable so far to get it up and running again.


When I run ps aux |grep sieve it is not returning anything to me suggesting that the problem is not with sieve it-self but rather with Dovecot not starting the sieve.


If anyone could give me some leads I can't think of anyting else.


netstat -a |grep 2000 returns

returns nothing


telnet localhost 2000

Trying ::1...

telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused

Trying fe80::1...

telnet: connect to address fe80::1: Connection refused


telnet: connect to address Connection refused

telnet: Unable to connect to remote host


The rest of mail functions not problem (IMAP, SMTP...).


Thanks in advance
