    Please see on page 4.

    There's a Dovecot package in the CentOS repository, but unfortunately it doesn't support MySQL. Therefore we must remove the existing Dovecot and install another Dovecot package (from ATrpms) which comes with MySQL support:

    yum remove dovecot

    rpm -ivh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/dovecot-1.2.11-3_108.el5.x86_64.rpm
    rpm -ivh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/dovecot-sieve-0.1.15-4.el5.x86_64.rpm

    rm -fr /usr/lib/dovecot/
    ln -s /usr/lib64/dovecot/ /usr/lib/dovecot

    The above RPM package do not exist... I mean it is not available at the path mentioned below. I am looking for right package having dovecot which support Mysql. Please advice.

    change version

    You just have to change the version to the latest.

    Just check in dl.atrpms.net for list of available version.

    For now, it's:

    Code:
    rpm -ivh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/dovecot-1.2.13-1_111.el5.x86_64.rpm
    rpm -ivh http://dl.atrpms.net/all/dovecot-sieve-0.1.17-5.el5.x86_64.rpm
    Hope it helps.
