    Default Problem after installing OX6

    maybe I am absolutly studit, but I have followed Open-Xchange Server 6 on Ubuntu 8.04 guide and OXHE-Installation-and-Administration-v1.2.5 and whole installation process was without any problem.
    But when I log in as testuser, I got:
    09-17-2008 01:37 PM-->Error code: Invalid sieve credentials (MAIL_FILTER-0002,-1032224135-158)
    09-17-2008 01:39 PM-->Error code: Missing parameter folder (MSG-0001,-1032224135-162)

    How can I create/configure sieve credentials and mail store?

    Thank you very much for any help and sorry for my bad english.

    I have the same problem while trying to install openxchange deb from ubuntu following howto "Ubuntu Hardy quick guide" and code from the community Hardy installer for the postfix -cyrus mail server.

    More precisely when I try to send email, the error message is "wrong or missing data to access the server"

    Thanks for any help,


    In fact I will share the code I am using (extract from a module of my project http://cooperation-iws.gensys-net.eu)

    This is not a installation issue but related to the mailserver configuration.

    Error message 1 says: "I cannot find a SIEVE server"
    Error message 2 says: "I cannot find a IMAP server".

    Please make sure you've configured the IMAP account for that user correctly when creating the user.

    Thanks for the answer, it is indeed an authentication problem.

    I am posting further questions, thinking that this is not an openxchange problems (rather a mail server problems), so you could redirect me to mail servers topics on the web.
    But as I based my install on the deprecated community installer with the new deb packages, this might be a piece of interests.

    I investigate a bit following this direction and I am wondering if the crypt=1 is well appropriate in the /etc/pam.d/imap sql query. In fact when I look in the openxchange database the password field is encrypted but the passwordMech is filled with {SHA} value.

    Moreover when I tried to login to cyrus with:
    cyradm -u oxadmin localhost
    I have an authentication error message.

    Well that's it for the moment. I am rather new in the world of mail servers so do not hesitate to tell me to look better on the web if my questions seem obvious .

    Hi Oliv,

    the installer used CRYPT mechanism for password management, the .deb files assume SHA to be the default because it is far more secure. As the installer provides OX 6.4, the packages provide OX 6.6 so those two installation methods may not fit together. The cause why the installer uses CRYPT is, that some E-Mail subsystems do not work well with SHA so making the E-Mail
    authentication working against the database we had to use CRYPT.

    To work around this issue you could do the following:
    a) Use SHA everywhere - if your subsystems support it
    b) Use CRYPT and set this mech as default when creating the database (look at the manual at http://software.open-xchange.com/ox6docs/ or the command line tool --help)

    Well, I find solution for CRYPT / SHA by modifying User.properties but I am still stuck with sieve credentials and a new error message telling me no server found when I tried to send an email.

    I gave up to play with new version and came back to installer which succeed in build all the applications (First time I use I had error with mysql database).

    But when loggued as testuser I receive no email. In fact I am trying to configure open-xchange with generic domain name localdomain, as I do not want to have a fixed IP address. I want to use openxchange with purely local servers ( as I am trying to make a nomad intranet server.
    So I have no errors message but I receive no mail (even when I am autosending me email).

    Finally I also gave up to play with installer and tried to build livecd from the chrooted environment where is installed OX.

    I tried to build live CD from both deb package or installer install and I have same error : the login hangs at 10%.

    Anyway, I am not requesting answer to all my questions now, I let message just for testimonial.

    Default manual

    Is there any manual for configuration OX and cyrus IMAP server correctly?
    Thanks a lot

    9.1.22. mailfilter.properties
    This file contains the configuration for the mailfilter plugin.
    Variable Value
    SIEVE_LOGIN_TYPE Specify which sieve server should be used. Two options are al-
    lowed here:
    user : use the setting stored for the user in the database
    global : use the sieve server given in this config file for all users
    SIEVE_CREDSRC Specify which sieve credentials should be use. Two options are
    allowed here:
    "session" : login name and password are used from the current
    "imapLogin" : the login name is taken from the database
    (imapLogin) of
    user, the password is taken from the current session
    SIEVE_SERVER Sieve server
    SIEVE_PORT Sieve port
    SCRIPT_NAME If you want the script to be generated with another script name
    change it here. Note that the mail filter bundle will then leave
    the old script with the old script name behind, and doesn't delete
