Hello!

This solution works fine with real linux accounts.

This send a single autoresponser message for all virtual email accounts in a domain under a linux vestacp account

BUT how can this work with virtual email accounts under a linux account?

Hi;

By following these step
and opening the port 4190

it works also for heavy client like Thunderbird or Claws-Mail

Thank for this HowTo :)

Jonathan

PS: I think it will be protected by fail2ban because sieve log into dovecot logs.

Does anyone know if this works on Debian/Ubuntu?

Good evening.

Today, I have had the same requirement in my VPS, then I have searched and I found one post of this forum in russian that it explains how can I set sieve in dovecot and set filters in roundcube.

viewtopic.php?t=6263

If you need, you can translate it with Google Translate for example.

Tested in Debian 8.11 VPS

Hey,
I've followed the tutorial but I cannot make it work. Settings screen shows filters option but when I click it it shows a 'File not found' error message 'This request has failed: MYDOMAIN.com/webmail/?_task=settings&_action=plugin.managesieve'

Can you help me with this?

I'm using CentOS 7.6.1810 with VestaCP using nginx 1.16, Apache 2.4.6 and Roundcube Webmail 1.4-rc1

Thank you in advance

I managed to solve it. The problem is in the file

Code: Select all

/etc/dovecot/conf.d/90-sieve.conf
This directive is deprecated:

Code: Select all

# Directory for :personal include scripts for the include extension. This
  # is also where the ManageSieve service stores the user's scripts.
  #sieve_dir = ~/sieve
  sieve_dir = ~/mail/%d/%n/sieve
  
You just need to change:

Code: Select all

  #sieve = ~/.dovecot.sieve
  sieve = ~/mail/%d/%n/dovecot.sieve
