UCS + Fetchmal fetch no mails..

  • Hi,
    i install kopano on my UCS Server.
    The most problem is “Fetchmal” we configure the fetchmal for any user but he fetch no mail.
    i have no idea, and no log? i see in the syslog a “Fetchmal is Startet…” but no more.

    Hi @bizzor,

    over at the Univention forum are quite a few users of the UCS Fetchmail app. i have not used it myself but would expect a logfile called fetchmail.log in /var/log.

  • Hello @bizzor

    take a look at /var/log/mail.log

    cat /var/log/mail.log | grep fetchmail

    and also check your fetchmail daemon:

    systemctl status fetchmail

  • Hi @bizzor and @fbartels,

    fetchmail.log exists if it is enabled in /etc/fetchmailrc.
    Change the line with “set no syslog” to “set syslog”. (I am not sure if this change survives a rebuild of /etc/fetchmailrc. I expect that there is a template for fetchmailrc somewhere. To make the change permanent you have to find the template and change it.)

    # grep syslog /etc/fetchmailrc 
    set no syslog

    check the status and restart the fetchmail daemon

    # /etc/init.d/fetchmail status
    # /etc/init.d/fetchmail restart
    # /etc/init.d/fetchmail status

    Regards Markus.
