But on the other way, it is only a script that is not used by default from ispCP and lies in the engine Folder. Every Dovecot User will be happy with that script to support crypted Passwords. But we should discuss that with more in the Internal Forum.
Totally agree, if you can make Dovecot users' live easier without causing problems to the rest, it's a win-win solution.
As soon I can, I'll update the wiki to reflect the new options ..

NOTE: Never heard before about the blowfish cbc, and haven't find much information, can you point me to some reading?

Thumbs UP! Thanks man!

We discuss that we only add the script in the Wiki and not in the Trunk.
But this is OK in my eyes. So we support in not offical but it will work Wink
It is currently running so on my Server.

RE: [HowTo] Replace courier with dovecot
i've added this to my server but now it doesn't accept any mails Sad
this failure i've found at /var/log/mail.log

Quote:ispcp dovecot: auth(default): prefetch(test@xxx.de): passdb didn't return userdb entries

and then the mail is bounced back with
Quote:I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below. For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster. If you do so, please include this problem report. You can delete your own text from the attached returned message. The mail system <test@xxx.de>: user unknown

I think that problem is caused by the script but i don't find the failure.

Any ideas?

RE: [HowTo] Replace courier with dovecot
i've solved it by deactivating this line:
virtual_transport = dovecot
at /etc/postfix/main.cf

You still can do the userdb check on the database while keeping the passdb on through the perl script.
This way, you can keep dovecot deliver for the delivery, and have working quotas and all that ...
Code:
auth default {
  mechanisms = plain login
  passdb checkpassword {
  args = /var/www/ispcp/engine/ispcp-dovecot-mngr
  }
  userdb sql {
   args = /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql-domain.conf
  }
  userdb sql {
    args = /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql-aliasdomain.conf
  }
  userdb sql {
   args = /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql-subdomain.conf
  }
The only thing you have to do is to keep the userdb entries like in the wiki, but skip the passdb entries related to SQL since it's done by the perl script now
Hey, finally I updated the HOWTO in http://www.isp-control.net/documentation...th_dovecot

Everything seems to be working fine in my testing install (webmail/imap, delivery, pop3)

Note: Could anyone put the ispcp-dovecot-mngr in the svn tree? I am afraid that people will overlook the note and en up with non-working installations.

Cheers

Dev team decided that this script will not be added to svn, because ispcp support only courier, not dovecot (my vote was against inclusion too). We need to keep ispcp code as simple as possible, and not confuse users about default mail server in use. If possible and if is necessary, I`ll offer updates to this script, but this belong to wiki not to svn. Maybe you can add code to wiki how to?

I would, since pointing someone to a forum thread that might change is not very practical, but the wiki doesn't allow me to upload files (as far as I know) and posting the whole code maybe would confuse the people too (too much code to copy)
