i spent couple hours yeasterday with setting up dovecot in Ubuntu 10.04

Be Aware, that Sieve settings are not included, as i was not able to set sieve correctly yet. I'm also not sure quota works as Roundcubemail doensn't show quota as it does for courier (

Dovecot config Ubuntu 10.04:

protocols = imap imaps pop3 pop3s

ssl_key_file = /etc/ssl/_.mydomain.tld/_.mydomain.tld.key

mail_privileged_group = mail

## IMAP specific settings
protocol imap {
mail_executable = /usr/lib/dovecot/rawlog /usr/lib/dovecot/imap
# Support for dynamically loadable plugins. mail_plugins is a space separated
# list of plugins to load.
mail_plugins = quota
#mail_plugin_dir = /usr/lib/dovecot/modules/imap
}

## POP3 specific settings
protocol pop3 {
mail_executable = /usr/lib/dovecot/rawlog /usr/lib/dovecot/pop3
pop3_uidl_format = %08Xu%08Xv
mail_plugins = quota
}

## LDA specific settings
