Re: iRedMail-0.8.0-beta3 has been released

I would really like to see integration with SElinux.
Are there plan in the future to integrate that in IredMail?

Not looking for a discussion wether SElinux is good or not.....

Thanks for all your good work.

No plan for SELinux yet, sorry.

Bug in iRedMail-0.8.0-beta3, fixed in beta4, will be released soon.

To fix it, please open functions/packages.sh, edit line 189, replace 'cluebringer' by 'policyd'.

    elif [ X"${DISTRO}" == X"SUSE" ]; then
        ALL_PKGS="${ALL_PKGS} policyd"

Re: iRedMail-0.8.0-beta3 has been released

Open Suse 12.1
Dovecot 2

Doveadm doesn't work

From command line
doveadm mailbox list -A
doveadm(root): Error: User listing returned failure
doveadm: Error: Failed to iterate through some users

Apr 19 08:01:03 auth-worker: Error: mysql: Query failed, retrying: Table 'vmail.users' doesn't exist
Apr 19 08:01:03 auth-worker: Error: sql: Iterate query failed: Table 'vmail.users' doesn't exist (using built-in default iterate_query: SELECT username, domain FROM users)

What I think may be the Possible Problems ?
1.  Maybe dovecot needs to run as vmail which has rights to the directories
2.  the dovecot-mysql.conf is not correct so doveadm can correctly intreprete


Re: iRedMail-0.8.0-beta3 has been released

I got different output with OpenLDAP backend, with the same command, it simply reports:

# doveadm mailbox list -s -u www@a.cn
doveadm(user@domain.ltd): Fatal: User doesn't exist

And you found a bug related to doveadm support. Here's solution to fix it:

1) For MySQL/PostgreSQL backend, please add one more column in table 'vmail.mailbox':

# For MySQL:
mysql> ALTER TABLE mailbox ADD COLUMN enabledoveadm TINYINT(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT 1;

# For PostgreSQL:
sql> ALTER TABLE mailbox ADD COLUMN enabledoveadm INT2 NOT NULL DEFAULT 1;

2) For OpenLDAP backend, all mail users should add one more value for attribute: enabledService:


Then it should work as expected.

== UPDATE ==
1) With OpenLDAP backend, 'doveadm mailbox list -A' doesn't work at all, because Dovecot will query LDAP server to get attribute 'uid' with filter "(objectClass=posixAccount)", but iRedMail user doesn't has this objectClass by default, and it should get attribute 'mail' instead of uid. I don't know how to configure filter and returned attributes yet, sorry.

2) About 'doveadm mailbox list -A', i asked in Dovecot mailing list about custom ldap filter here: http://marc.info/?l=dovecot&m=13348 … 01&w=2. [UPDATE: SOLVED by add two new lines in dovecot-ldap.conf:]

iterate_attrs   = mail=user
iterate_filter  = (&(objectClass=mailUser)(accountStatus=active)(enabledService=mail))

3) Please add below line in dovecot-mysql.conf (or dovecot-pgsql.conf if you're running PostgreSQL backend) to fix this issue:

iterate_query = SELECT username AS user FROM mailbox
