    Hi all,

    I am new to ISPConfig and as far as I have seen it I like it ;) . But I also have some problems and as a result questions about them.

    For the mail delivery I saw that procmail is used for every user as a result to the scripts in the users home directory. I would immigrate from a large base of sieve users and as such need to use dovecots deliver. Is a combination of both delivery scripts possible - probably without hacking ispconfig to much?

    If this is not possible, could procmail ispconfig wide be replaced with deliver - something like modifying the users home directory template?

    Thanks in advance and kind regards,

    The complete ISPConfig mail system is based on procmail. If you want to change to another lda, you will have to rewrite almost the complete mail configuration system of ISPConfig.

    Possible without using the config?

    And would it be possible - with breaking the ISPConfig GUI SPAM configuration approach?

    All the Best

    As till said you will break the complete ispconfig mail system! But actually I do not care - so in short - create a new forward.master file with your fav. editor


    and add this line (you must replace the path with the one on your system):

    | "/usr/lib/dovecot/deliver"

    When you create a new account or alter an existing one the settings, will be automatically copied to the home of all mail users of one domain (as far as I saw). There might be a command line to refresh all settings - but I wasnt aware of it - as I said before totally new to ISPConfig...

    Best regards,
