[solved] What is the better choice, getmail or fetchmail?

  • UCS 4.4.1 with Kopano 8.7.1

    I haveing here some trouble to get my mails from mailservers with getmails. It always generate mailloops because my mailserver is Ubuntu with Virutalmin. On every other mailserver it is not a problem to fetch the mails with getmail. For example Googlemail is working.

    If kopano fetch mails with getmail. I see this mail on virtualmin Mailserver:
    This is the mail system at host mail.deepdoc.at

    I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
    be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.
    For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster.
    If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
    delete your own text from the attached returned message.
                       The mail system
    <info-deepdoc.at@mail.deepdoc.at>: mail forwarding loop for info-deepdoc.at@mail.deepdoc.at

    The thing is that the real mailaddress is “info@deepdoc.at” My colleague mean that on virtualmin is a something like procmailwrapper. I talked to the virtualmin support, but they said: “no support for third part apps like Kopano”. Nice.

    So the idea was to use fetchmail in UCS. Never triyed that. And what is have seen in screenshots, you are able to use only one mailbox per user. And what is this screenshot in this thread?

    Thanks a lot
    Best Regards

  • Virtualmin do something different. So in getmailconfigs to fetch mails i have to change something. Thanks on my colleague.

    - envelope_recipient = delivered-to:1
    + envelope_recipient = X-Original-To:1

    Works now perfectly :)
