Hi All, I''m trying out the imapsync migration tool, migrating user mails from cyrus IMAP to Dovecot IMAP. In order to avoid knowing about each of the users password, I use the cyrus admin user in the cyrus end. Is there such a thing as the dovecot admin user, or is that simply the root user? Any input appreciated /Lars

Capturing credentials for imap sync
Hi List All the imap sync apps I could find requires the username /password credentails to be known before a sync occurs. I have Dovecot using ldap acting as a nearline backup mail server to MS Exchange. Every hour imapsync syncs mail between Exchange and Dovecot. This all works fine becuase the users credentials are known, but when new users are added I would like the process to work

Does a script exist to fix broken maildir timestamps?
Hello, When I upgraded to dovecot (changing servers at the same time) in November last year I copied the maildirs from my old server without using the -p option to preserve timestamps! Since my mail client displays the email dates based on the Date header rather than the imap "internaldate" I didn''t notice the problem until today when I tried to migrate an account to gmail

Hi, We have an Exchange server (server 2003) that is a domain controller and a few Samba file servers that are not part of the Windows domain.
