    I've on production two redunded servers in a cluster and the emails are syncronized by Dovecot sync (Ispconfig 3.1.13 Debian 9 with Apache, Mariadb and Dovecot). Both servers are Ispconfig "slave" with Ispconfig master (the panel interface) on an another server. Of course getmail catch the emails, from external mailboxes, on each of both servers and the emails are duplicated.

    What is the best way for fix this problem?

    I think that to delete the /etc/getmail folder in one of servers may prevent Getmail Ispconfig configuration and stop the problem for now, but could it possibly cause this workaround some other malfunctions?

    Thanks a lot

    That's probably the best way to get around that and then we'll have to add a fix in ispconfig to create the getmail config on the master only and not the mirror.
