    Apologies for the delayed response but I find restarting the Mail and Web services on completing config usually gets it working. Not sure which one makes it work and if I'm feeling lazy and circumstances permit I'll just reboot the server.

    Still Cannot get Filters to work redshift....

    telnet 4190:




    Connected to localhost.

    Escape character is '^]'.

    "IMPLEMENTATION" "Dovecot Pigeonhole"

    "SIEVE" "fileinto reject envelope encoded-character vacation subaddress comparator-i;ascii-numeric relational regex imap4flags copy include variables body enotify environment mailbox date ihave"

    "NOTIFY" "mailto"



    "VERSION" "1.0"

    OK "Dovecot ready."

    Also do you know how to get read receipts working so that it doesn't matter where the message is sent or recived (ipad,Iphone, mac etc) it will send one?  Cause right now if I say send a read receipt t will only work if it is from with in roundcube...

    I've always worked directly with Dovecot and Sieve - I've never seen roudcube as I've never needed anything else.


    Dovecot may be a bit more "manual," but it's quite easy to write up scripts and test them against sample emails to see what would have been done.


    As such you can set up replies, receipts, forwarders, trashes, etc for both system-wide and user-centric scripts.  Not only that, but once you get familiar with that, you can them jump back and forth between postfix access-lists (such as IP filers or Domain filters) and customizing Dovecot's error/status reporting when NDRs or rejects *very* granularly.


    If I get an email from Afghanistan, I can reply with "Durka Durka!" If I get an email from I can reply with "It's 'FUBAR' due."  Or general Dovecot error messages.  I assume all that roundcube does is script up the same.


    In a pinch, you can even telnet into Sieve to fix something when you are away.  I use a Perl script to manage it and it's a snap.


    If you want to go in that direction, I'm happy to help and can even post examples.  Some references are:



    That should get you started if you are interested.

    Ok so were do I put these?

    How do I make sure read reciepts are sent from certain server accounts no matter what device?

    How do I set up vacations alerts?

    I don't even know where to start....

  • Thor HoG Level 1 Level 1

    Reading the documentation in the links will take a little time, but it should help you identify the requirements.  They are actually relatively simple once you get your head around it.


    I'm assuming you have access to the /library/server/mail/config/dovecot/conf.d files on the server.  There they contain the various access-controls for Dovecot.  Sieve is a separate-but-related service where you will upload scripts to in order to configure rules.


    If you don't have acces to the server, then I apologize for that assumption.  I am aware this may be a bit confusing going in and requires some level of a learning curve, but given your roundcube product doesn't work, I don't really know what other direction to point you to.  There are clients such as Thunderbird that have Sieve plugins that allow the client to configure and upload their own, but again, I don't know what influence you have over those decisions.



  • stephen.willis.smith Level 1 Level 1

    yeah I unfortunatley I am the one that runs the server....

    I just got roundcube working so I now get out of office responses!!!


    So now I just need the read reciepts...  I'll check out the links


  • kginger_consulting Level 1 Level 1

    I've checked everything, I click on Filters and get "An Error Occured!" "Unable to connect to Server" I have my debug set to true but am not getting any log messages... Ideas? Thanks!

  • raydelsol Level 1 Level 1

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!

  • Free Tibet Level 1 Level 1

    I am having issues now where I can't turn off vacation notice, its getting scarry

  • Free Tibet Level 1 Level 1

    vacation notices are being sent out for 3 users but only ever been set up for one...

    I have deleted all roundcube.sieve & dovecot.sieve files in the /server/mail/data/rules/$u/ folders...

    then set up a new rule for the only user who ever had this set up....

    he then sends out the new message.....

    if I disable the vacation notice in roundcube for that user then the old vacation notice gets sent out which I cannot find anywhere there seems to be a ghost in the machine, if i re enable the new vacation notice then the new one goes out and not the old one.... ......

    If I delete the vacation notice the old one goes out......

    Freshly posted:


    This is an automated installation of Roundcube.

    It configures postgres, initializes the database, installs mcrypt and configures a Roundcube WebApp.


    About 2 minutes to install, at the end it will load your default site (/mail) with Rouncube working.


    This installation includes managesieve (vacation filters, etc) pre-configured..




    10.8.x only

  • Free Tibet Level 1 Level 1

    I would like to say that this was a red herring, a user had configured the 3 accounts on his mac with a rule in mail to send an auto reply... I did not realise this as I had not visited the site and it was contrary to all our advice, and they flat denied it, but logs don't lie this user had set up a rule in mail and that is where the issue arose from....

  • davidh Level 4 Level 4

    Thanks for this, very helpful.


    But you need to change


    sudo createdb -O roundcube -E UNICODE roundcubemail




    sudo createdb -U _postgres -O roundcube -E UNICODE -W roundcubemail
