The different meaning of tls:// and ssl:// in $config['default_host'] is unfortunately not documented. tls:// means usage of STARTTLS, thus usually port 143 ssl:// means usage of TLS, thus usually port 993 The same is valid for $config['smtp_server'] and ports 25 and 587 for tls://, ports 465 for ssl://. Can't give any source for this information, as I ...
This isn't really a server configuration question. Set Gmail to retrieve email from your Zoho account via pop3 and to send mail through Zoho's SMTP server. That's it.
I think I found a way to set up a maildir structure without making any changes to the folders and files I have. I made a separate maildir folder in a different place, and used symlinks to point to my mail-containing folders, like this: maildir ├─ .2015-01 │ └─ cur -> path/to/2015-01 └─ .2015-02 └─ cur -> path/to/2015-02 I gave dovecot write ...
To make this work you'll have to at least move these messages into a MailDir like structure. My Dovecot maildir looks like this for the account firstname.lastname@example.org ./iswhale.com/ahoy/.Drafts/tmp ./iswhale.com/ahoy/.Drafts/new ./iswhale.com/ahoy/.Drafts/cur ./iswhale.com/ahoy/cur ./iswhale.com/ahoy/new ./iswhale.com/ahoy/tmp If you make a new sub-folder, say ...
In fact, the problem is simple: your JAMES server is running in an instance that's probably geographically far from where you usually are when you log in to your Gmail account, so it appears to Google like someone is trying to break into your account (after all, how can you be logging in from California and Virginia within a couple of hours of each other?). ...
Try verbose_ssl = yes. This will make Dovecot log all the problems it sees with SSL connections.
Take a backup of the existing outlook profile by exporting it into pst file and suggest you to setup new profile with imap settings. Once outlook/email client is setup with new account, please import pst file into this new profile which should then sync with server.
Old emails will be deleted once the server comes back online with an empty account. Copy the emails to PST file, then when your server is back online and both accounts are sync copy them back in.
Here the proposed mail-flow-diagram for your case. External mail server | ▲ | | POP3 SMTP | | ▼ | Local mail server First, you need setup working local mail server with postfix and dovecot. The important parameter for postfix is never list your local domain in relay_domains. You can use virtual_mailbox_domains ...
Are you running with SELINUX enabled? If so, selinux may block dovecot from binding to another port and, after that, it re-bind on the default port (993). Try to temporarily disable selinux with setenforce 0 and to restart dovecot. Does that change anything?
