History

#1 Updated by Giacomo Sanchietti over 5 years ago

This is a wrong behavior of Outlook.

By the way, there is a dovecot plugin to workaround the problem: http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Plugins/deleted-to-trash.

A source rpm for an old release of the plugin can be found in attachment.

Test Case

Use Outlook client.

  • Install dovecot plugin from testing
  • Update nethserver-mail-server
  • Try to delete a mail.

Now the mail is moved to trash instead of marked as deleted.

We must find a way to reduce log verbosity: in /var/log/imap

See Dovecot documentation:
http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Logging

To avoid debug messages in /var/log/imap we could tweak rsyslogd configuration under /etc/rsyslog.d/imap.conf, or try to not send any debug message at all, by setting debug_log_path = /dev/null in Dovecot configuration. The latter is only an hypothesis, I don't know if it can work.

#11 Updated by Giacomo Sanchietti almost 5 years ago

Let's go with the simplest approach: fork the original plugin and comment all debug calls.

I'm not a C programmer, but if possible, I'd rather try to define a macro that silence the i_debug calls, something like:

#ifdef QUIET_DEBUG
#define i_debug() { \
 /*noop*/
}\
#endif

Test Case

Try to delete or move mail in your mail client and check if the verbosity of debug disappears.
