If you’re using only static UID and GID, and your home directory can be specified with a template, you could use static userdb instead. Overriding settings Most commonly settings are overridden from plugin section. Home directories Some people are opposed to the idea of virtual users having home directories, but no matter what you call it, it’s a good idea to have a directory where user-specific configuration and other state is stored. All these files are joined together to form the complete Dovecot configuration. I have the same error even after changing the above mentioned lines in the configuration.

Many sysadmins found that it does not scale well, was cryptic to configure and did not stop spam emails reliably for each individual user. The user database lookup can return these fields: Whether you connect from your smartphone your laptop or use the webmail access — the rules always work. It saved the day when my mail server was broken after the upgrade to Debian Jessie.

Hi Tony… Thanks for your nice feedback. But even then I can imagine that further index and cache files may get in your way.
