    I am using FC3+Dovecot+ISPConfig+Uebimiau webmail+ ISPConfig's built-in firewall

    I typed the following command in the shell:

    chkconfig imap off
    chkconfig imaps off
    chkconfig ipop3 off
    chkconfig pop3s off
    chkconfig dovecot on

    /etc/init.d/dovecot start

    Next I went into ISPConfig and place a checkmark in the Maildir checkbox.
    Next,I edit /etc/postfix/ and uncomment the following line:

    #home_mailbox = Mailbox
    home_mailbox = Maildir/

    Then sent an email in uebimiau webmail to my email address [email protected] and also c.c. to [email protected] on this server.

    I found a Maildir folder under my user's directory with the following subfolders:

    But, there is no new mail in the webmail box or in the user's /new folder when I relogin the webmail!

    The website of is working well.

    Any idea?

    Did you get any errors in the mail log? Have you checked the quota for this user?

    What does that user's .procmailrc (/webx_user01/.procmailrc) look like?

    Problem is solved after I have chagned both ISPConfig's Server settings and DNS records to external ip address. Now I am able to send or receive emails in Mairdir format.

    But, when I login to ISPConfig again, there is no such colum as "MailSpace" for me to assign email space for each user! There should be two colums as "WebSpace" and "MailSpace" for each user, Shouldn't it?

    Not if you're using Maildir because then emails are stored in the user's homedir which is managed by the webspace quota.

    I see.
    But, when I set in ISPConfig:

    Site webspace: 300mb
    webx_user01 webspace: 50mb administrator
    webx_user02 webspace: 20mb
    webx_user03 webspace: 10mb

    Why all the users in Uebimiau showing their maximum quota is only 10mb?

    I have unzipped the two updated files to the ispconfig's inc folder and restart postfix and ispconfig server too.

    And a line in config.php is:

    //$quota_limit = 4096 //

    Also, I have a line in /etc/postfix/
    #home_mailbox = Mailbox
    home_mailbox = Maildir/

    But, Uebimiau still display max. quota in 10MB for all the users. I thought it would reflect the correct webspaces for each ISPconfig user.

    Anything else that I should pay attention to?
