Synchronizing rules Between Outlook and Server


  • Hello,

    I have a question and I hope you can help me. Unfortunately I do not even know if this section of the forum is the right place to post this question, so my apologies, should it not be.

    I used Zarafa and Outlook. In Outlook I created rules which were then saved on the server. Every time I opened Outlook and created new rules these were pushed to the server. I loved that functionality and when I created my own I was thinking that by using dovecot sieve that would do the same thing. I managed to get sieve set up but somehow the sync between Outlook and the server does not happen.

    My question is: What filter system was used on the Zarafa platform (which I assumed sieve was)? Can sieve be used with Outlook and z-push to store the filters?

    Thank you for your feedback.

    regards

    Hi @Realshadow,

    that was a custom filter solution that was applied by dagent before the final delivery to the mailbox. The same solution still exists in Kopano and has even been enhanced a bit since then.

    Can sieve be used with Outlook

    A quick search on the internet only brought up a now defunct plugin for Outlook for Mac


  • Hi @fbartels

    Thanks for your feedback. That’s unfortunate. I will have to figure out if I can make outlook run with dovecot sieve. Thanks though. That helps to understand the architecture a little better.
