    You need to install Dovecot-pigeonhole first and then start to configure it. You will need to make sure you are using LDA or LMTP for the message delivery. The Wiki is pretty much self-explanatory, if not slightly complicated. You just need to follow that with adaptations for your setup.

    Each persons installation will be a little different. That's why there's no "easy" answer. You have to look at the base documents of the sieve implementation you are using and then modify it to fit your system.

    Quote from CarpCharacin: “But was what was preventing it to start an error in the config file, or those commands not being run with the correct user?” Don't know as I wasn't present to see what was going on. It could be either instance - but most likely a config file error. There should have been something present in the DoveCot log showing why it couldn't start... but you might have needed to increase the logging level to get it.

    You have to review the config files and see what it is set to run as. You can also use ps aux | grep dovecot and the first line should show you who the user is - but not the group.

    I've quit using a home rolled mail solution and grabbed another VPS and run Mailcow-dockerized on it. It does the spam related stuff for you and does a very good job of it. It uses RSpamD to do the spam checking with and I have very little problems with spam getting through. It is much easier to deal with since it is a package setup and uses a nicer web interface (SoHo) than RoundCube. One of the reasons I went to it was sieve was giving me headaches to set up as well as the span/virus checking.…

    Looks like dovecot is not running from what I could tell? If not, that's the issue and you need to reverse the changes you made to the dovecot config files and then try restarting dovecot. One thing I noticed was you were, in your chown examples, prefixing the ## on them. You do realize that those are not to be typed in, only the chown commands, correct? chown vmail: -R /etc/dovecot/sieve chown vmail:mail /var/log/dovecot-* But you have to make sure that dovecot is running as vmail:mail user:gro…

    That's the issue with guides you find on the internet. They may not be using the same owners/processes that you are, just similar and you have to know that to know what to change in them. Are you sure that the owner of the processes is vmail? The correct syntax for chown is chown user:group. I hope you made notations of what you changed so that you could reverse them if needed. Have you checked the logs for the HTTP server and associated processes used? Have you confirmed that the sub-processes …

    The sieve rule will need to use whatever subject string is placed in there by the spam detection software.

    Having that checked will delete any messages that appear in the junk mail folder. I think it uses Junk for the Spam unless you set up another folder for Spam - so yes, it should immediately delete them.

    Then [SPAM] would be your filter phrase in the subject header.

    RoundCube should have the ability to have filtering set up so that it automatically (when you go into it) copies those into the junk folder. That's also what I was referring to about sieve, which will do it automatically. Did you not read the answers on that link I provided? It will take some modifications of your dovecot.conf to get sieve enabled and filtering correctly. That way, when the mail comes in with the SPAM in it, it will automatically be moved to Junk. You should be able to also have…

    If using RoundCube, that's handled by a filter for it since it uses iMap if I remember correctly. It should be able to automatically put any flagged as SPAM into a spam folder if the DoveCot has been configured to use spam folders. You basically use sieve to filter it out as it comes in. serverfault.com/questions/7646…stfix-move-spam-to-folder

    What is a good version to install on an old Atom powered Asus EEE PC netbook. I've got Ubuntu installed on it now and it runs OK, but I remember the older versions being faster. Is there not a recommended version for the older systems - specifically 32bit or the Atom processors?

  • And yet another server move

    Since this was posted we have moved all the sites I maintain over to a VPS with RamNode. I could not justify the cost of a dedicated server for low traffic sites. If they pick up we will increase the VPS size and if necessary move to a dedicated again in the future.

    The site has lain fallow (the domain and forum) for a while and I've decided to bring it back with the WBB version I had online when I brought it down. The only real change is that there is a different style here now and some of the attachments didn't carry forward as there was an issue with WBB importing from one WBB instance to another.

    This is the current script I use now to perform my DB backups with. It uses the standard mysqldump program. The last part of it (the NFS part) is specific to my OVH setup that allows me to have an NFS drive attached to the server. Shell-Script (46 lines)

  • Just a heads up to anyone that is thinking of using OVH supplied server and wants to use the default kernel. The D-1520/40 line (HOST line) uses a newer ethernet card that is not supported in the current stable CentOS version kernel(s)... and may not be in others. You MUST use the custom compiled (by OVH) kernels to work with CentOS to get the ethernet card to work. The info on the ethernet card is below Source Code (2 lines)You will need at least CentOS kernel 4.2 for it to work, and that's not…

  • BTW, I ended up putting up a "play" site using Discourse. Don't know if I'll leave it up or not. Ended up getting a $10 DO droplet to play with it on. Personally wasn't awed my Discourse, but I can see where it would be popular with some.

    The old OVH server I was using was a HOST32-L (D1520 processor). We've moved off of it over to an EG-32 (still with 2 480GB SSD's). The reason of the move was mainly because the HOST32-L uses a newer motherboard & chipset. This also included a newer ETH chipset that is not currently supported in the latest stable CentOS builds. The custom rolled kernel from OVH had some other issues involved that I did not like (won't go into detail but they were mainly web service setup related for me). This ne…
