    I'm trying ispconfig3 from SVN: is a very good work!! Thanks to developer.
    My question is about getmail.
    I've found no entry in getmail user crontab and so the script getmail.sh is never invoked. Seem installer (installer_base.lib.php lines 1059-1081) doesn't create these entries.
    Thanks.

    PS: IMHO could be usefull to create a forum section dedicated to ISPConfig 3.0!

    Error: configuration file /etc/getmail/*.conf does not exist

    Hello,

    I'm getting this error in ISPC-Cron-log.
    Error: configuration file /etc/getmail/*.conf does not exist


    Information in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/getmail.sh
    #!/bin/bash
    getmail -g /etc/getmail/ -r /etc/getmail/*.conf

    But I have no files in /etc/getmail/

    What is the best way to solve this problem?

    Thanks, guys.

    Another bug? (solved)

    getmail version 4.7.8 (Debian lenny)

    If there is more than one retrive task (more .conf files in /etc/getmail) the mail isn't retrieved an is logged an error:

    Error: unknown argument(s) ['[email protected]'] ; try --help

    For handling multiple task seem getmail require to be invoked with a different syntax:

    /usr/bin/getmail -n -v -g /etc/getmail -r /etc/getmail/file1.conf -r /etc/getmail/file2.conf -r /etc/getmail/file3.conf

    or with a single rcfile with configuration for multiple tasks.

    I've solved in this way:

    1 - in /etc/getmail create a file /run-getmail.sh (chown getmail + chmod 744)

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh 
    set -e 
    cd /etc/getmail 
    rcfiles="" 
    for file in *.conf ; do 
      rcfiles="$rcfiles -r $file" 
    done 
    #echo  $rcfiles
    exec /usr/bin/getmail -n -v -g /etc/getmail $rcfiles
    2 - edited crontab of user getmail to invoke this script
    Code:
    */5 * * * * /etc/getmail/run-getmail.sh  > /dev/null 2>> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log
