Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Re: Iredmail hooks / notifications on mail reception

We tried to run a Shell Script containing "echo 'msg'".
After running the following SQL command we were not able to send e-mails anymore and no results were displayed :

UPDATE mailbox SET transport='external-pipe' WHERE username='user@domain.ltd';

Then, What's wrong ? What should we include in our Shell script to make it work perfectly ?

Debug your script ...

Note: full email messages was piped to your script as stdin. like this:

bash script.sh < /path/to/file

Re: Iredmail hooks / notifications on mail reception

When I followed  the tutorial you sent to me earlier and tried to send an email, it said : "Is there any server running on port 5432 on host 127.0.0.1 ?" . When I start the local postgresql service (on Iredmail Docker container), it said 'FATAL:  password authentication failed for user "vmail" '.

P.S: The Postgresql containing all mailing data (iredapd,vmail,amavisd) is located on an isolated container. I am running iredmail on another container as well. Why is it looking locally for the database when using the hooks ??

When I tried to shutdown local postgres (installed on the iredmail container), it said (on /var/log/iredapd/iredapd.log):
"2017-04-17 13:27:27 ERROR Unexpected error: (OperationalError) could not connect to server: Connection refused
        Is the server running on host "127.0.0.1" and accepting
        TCP/IP connections on port 5432?"

Please advise.

Re: Iredmail hooks / notifications on mail reception

Maybe quarantine all clean email to amavis database.
then use it to another program.

at /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user

Re: Iredmail hooks / notifications on mail reception

Thanks for your reply but my problem is not how to retrieve incoming mails. It's about executing a shell script on mail receipt.
When I used Postfix hooks, Postfix was pointing to localhost when the call occurred. When I sent mails without hooks configuration, the postfix  is pointing to the external postgresql database.

What's wrong with the hooks ? Why are they looking  locally (local postgres database) instead of the external  postgresql ?
