Topic: getmail integration

Hi,

for those having a hosting server and wish to sync the 2 servers , i just discovered getmail (better than fetchmail)
i have changed the code to resend the mail via smtp (so that iredmail process it as usual) - getmail do not scan

here is the instructions for centos + openldap -- still draft --
(i'm using a modified code from :
http://www.effinger.org/blog/2009/03/22 … 4-getmail/)

1. install getmail :

wget http://choonrpms.choon.net/centos/5.6/c … noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh http://choonrpms.choon.net/centos/5.6/c … noarch.rpm
or
yum localinstall http://choonrpms.choon.net/centos/5.6/c … noarch.rpm

2. create an OU in the domain with phpldapadmin
ou=Mails

3. add the schema to openldap (need to see how to integrate the schema)
copy the dovecot.schema to /etc/openldap/dovecot.schema

/etc/openldap/slapd.conf

include     /etc/openldap/schema/dovecot.schema

restart openldap : service ldap restart

4. create folders :
/root/getmail/getmail_config

mkdir -p /root/getmail/getmail_config

5. create the hosting accounts in phpldapadmin :

dn: dcRetrieveLogin=<external login>,ou=Mails,domainName=<..........>
dcaccountstatus: active
dcretrievelogin: <external login>
dcretrievepassword: <external password>
dcretrieveserver: <external server>
dcretrievetype: SimplePOP3Retriever
dcsubmailaddress: <local email address>
objectclass: dcExternalMailAccount
objectclass: top

6. copy the files in /root/getmail (see zip file)
and change config file :  getmail-ldap.cfg

replace accordingly

7. test by running getmail-ldap.py

8. add to crontab
