    I hope someone can save me here, i moved my support system to a new server and we went from Courrier to Dovecot, so its in Sieve format now.

    I have been looking at .sieve.log file and there are errors when emails come in and they dont get piped.

    I am trying to pipe emails into our support system. The script is a php script, more specifically var/www/clients/client1/web3/web/pipe/pipe.php

    Does anyone know the exact syntax to pipe into a php script?

    The old way i was doing was

    to "| php -q /var/www/whmcs/pipe/pipe.php"

    but thats Maildrop format i believe.

    Sieve does not support piping of emails to scripts or other applications.

    Hi Till,

    I dont think thats nescessary. There are other options to pipe mail to a script e.g. by using a postfix alias.
