Hello everybody,
I regret that my first post is about a problem but it seems i cannot proceed without your help...

The problem is that the mails do not arive into the inbox, from what i can see the plugin dovecot sieve is not suported after the php update and thus thw following error occurs.

May 18 18:21:15 digi-web dovecot: deliver(admin@dmydomain): Module is for different version 1.2.16:


May 18 18:21:15 digi-web dovecot: deliver(admin@mydomain): Fatal: Couldn't load required plugins

I have installed a perfect server using the Tutorial and i have upgraded into php5.3 using this link http://www.webtatic.com/packages/php53/

The php upgrade was just before i installed ispconfig3 and all went well also the command used was yum upgrade php.
also the versions installed were
dovecot.x86_64 1:1.2.17-0_115.el5 dovecot-sieve.x86_64 1:0.1.18-6.1.el5

i am currently seaching for a way to fix the problem through google but i do not seem to find something.
Thank you for your time!

Sure thing,
You will be able to send emails by disabling sieve plugin from dovecot.conf (/etc/dovecot.conf)

protocol lda {
# Address to use when sending rejection mails (e.g. postmaster@example.com).
#postmaster_address =
postmaster_address = postmaster@example.com

# Hostname to use in various parts of sent mails, eg. in Message-Id.
# Default is the system's real hostname.
#hostname =

# Support for dynamically loadable plugins. mail_plugins is a space separated
# list of plugins to load.
#mail_plugins =
#mail_plugin_dir = /usr/lib/dovecot/lda
#mail_plugins = sieve quota
mail_plugins = quota :)
mail_plugin_dir = /usr/lib/dovecot/lda

Thanks!! :-)
It now works, but now I don't have sieve.. :-) I'll just have it in mind, and I'll search for a fix some other time. I don't think I need it.
