forward-only e-Mail Address (with regex?)

Hello all,

how can a forward only e-Mail Address being created in Kolab 3?

(1) All Mails to

should get delivered to

support <at> (on another server).

(2) Is this possible with regex?

E.g. support.(.*) <at>

should be delivered to

support <at> \

(where \1 contains the match of the .*)

Best regards,

2. How to setup SMTP, POP, IMAP servers?
    E.g. root domain: smtp/pop/ | new domain: smtp/pop/

Kolab <-> UCS 4.0


As I didn't find anything while searching - can anyone point me to a resource that might tell when Kolab will be available for Univention Corporate Server v4.0?


Thanks in advance,





I respect your position, Professor - I just don't share it.

kolab_smtp_access_policy exit status 1

Hi list users,

the last days I struggled with a clean kolab installation at a wheezy debian. After "setup-kolab" I just added my external domains as additional domains to the default domain.

Unfortunately I am unable to send and receive e-mails due to the follow mail.log messages.

(sending mail to external)

Nov 23 18:12:05 postfix/submission/smtpd[8377]: disconnect from localhost[]

I just removed the policy checks from the and got the mails flowing, but that couldn't be the way to go. :-\

Can you give me any hints, how to debug the "kolab_smtp_access_policy"?

I got a message on the kolab log, but not sure, if this belongs to my issue.

IPA Mailalias


My setup, with IPA does recognize the mailaddress of the user, which
is nice and should be working as well.

My next target is adding more mailaddresses to a user and have them
recognized by my setup and delivered to that user as well in his
existing mailbox.

As the mailaddress of a user using IPA/Kolab is bound to his username
for IPA, I get some not so nice emailaddresses, there for the aliases
I want to have working.

Any people know where to start or have some ideas ?

Roundcubemail and kolab dynamic distribution lists


does anyone work yet with dynamic distribution lists? I cannot get them
to work with roundcubemail. The group ist displayed, but seems to be empty.

# Service Users, Groups,
dn: cn=Service-Users,ou=Groups,dc=domain,dc=com
cn: Service-Users
mail: service-users <at>
objectClass: top
objectClass: groupofurls
objectClass: kolabgroupofuniquenames

Roundcubemail says on loading the dynamic list:
C: Read cn=Service-Users,ou=Groups,dc=domain,dc=com [(objectClass=*)]
C: Close

Sending messages to service-users <at> works though (locally

Any thoughts here? I copied the config from my old roundcubemail setup,
so maybe there is some missing value here somewhere?

Re: Kolab 3.1: LDAP-Verzeichnis im Thunderbird-Adressbuch


ein paar mehr Informationen wären nett.

Was sind denn deine "alten Einstellungen"? Versuche von deinem
Thunderbird-Rechner eine einfache ldapsuche ohne Thunderbird. Kannst du
deinen Server überhaupt auf Port 389 oder 636 erreichen (telnet)?

Viele Grüße

bulk update of secondary email address

Hello,  I have hundreds of email aliases to migrate from kolab 2 to kolab 3 

secondary email addresses. This kolab instance has only a few users, but many aliases per user.


In kolab 2 web admin the email alias was a list box that allowed block cut and paste.  Kolab 3 is not so easy.


What is the best way to import these aliases?

Process .forward on Kolab 3.3


I need to be able to process .forward files for a specific kolab user 
(the mail needs to be sent to a command).

I created a local user on the linux box, created a kolab user, and 
created a .forward file in the home folder of the user.

This used to work in Kolab 2, but now the .forward file is NOT 
processed. How can I enable .forward processing?

Mailbox does not exists after login

It seems that the mailbox for a user is not created after login.

I get this in a debug log:

I have read that cyrus should not be able to login when it doesn't
have the default domain from the ldap server.

My setup is:

ldap: dc=sub,dc=comp,dc=local

and my users have uid <at> domain.tld as their domainname.

in my ldap (ipa I have)

# kolab, config
dn: cn=kolab,cn=config
objectClass: top
objectClass: extensibleobject
cn: kolab

#, kolab, config
objectClass: top
objectClass: domainrelatedobject
objectClass: inetdomain
associatedDomain: dc=sub,dc=comp,dc=local
inetDomainBaseDN: dc=sub,dc=comp,dc=local

Any idea on this ?

SMTP-failure: [554] 5.7.1 <DATA>: Data command rejected: Unverifiable sender.

Hi guys,

What can cause this issue when sending an email from Roundcube when I
use an associated domain ?

I used the Multidomain howto but I still get this on sending an email.

SMTP-failure: [554] 5.7.1 <DATA>: Data command rejected: Unverifiable sender.

Any idea on this ?
