Simon, great again.
Re your user unable to login to imap:
Try setting the imap logging to debug.
I'm on my phone at the moment so I don't have the exact command,
Do a sudo serveradmin settings mail:imap
Find the mail:imap logging entry - it will by default be equal to "warn"
Change that to DEBUG
Stop and start mail
Then your logs will be full of imap logging!
I use an iOS app called Server Admin
It's super quick to get access to the various logs for troubleshooting.
If you can't fix it - start a new thread with the log results and someone will help!
Ok, I think my non functioning IMAP account is related to the fact I added it as the iCal email notification for testing. So it did not have anything to do with managesieve or roundcube.
Gerry if you are up for that challange please have a look over at: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4183859
Thanks again for all help, would have lost a lot of hair trying to get webmail and vacation note | rules | filters up and running without your notes on this. Very appreciated!
OK. I think I've got it. After messing around endlessly with sieve rules and attempting to use 3rd party vacation plugins (which I couldn't easily make work), the solution was easy.
When you create the rule, be sure to put your e-mail address in the following field:
Additional list of recipient e-mails (comma separated):
As soon as I did that, viola!
I have already tried that but I still don't get the mail. I do not see any evidence of it in the smtp logs, imap logs, syslog and sieve logs etc. the only thing I do see is that the hidden file in the users uuid folder called .dovecot.sieve.dupes, I think, does get created. This file is used to stop the mail being sent more than once every day for example.
Gary, start from scratch !
Create a new DNS entry - webmail2@yourdomain
Create a new website and download current roundcube and go from there.
It will not take as long as you think - create a new database as well. It can co-exist with your current webmail and will not cause any conflict for testing purposes.
If you're really bent on solving it - You'll need to get deep into the documentation on the various wiki's
Let us know how you go!
I've followed these instructions on a fresh install of OS X 10.8 server.
Everything went well during the setup but I have a big issue with postgres. The service stops by himself afterr a few minutes. If I relaunch it it stays up and runs for a few minutes and stops again.
Any idea how i can fix that ?
