Re: SSL certificates

  I use a GoDaddy 2048bit cert on my personal server with no issues.  In 
imapd.conf I have set the following:

tls_cert_file: /etc/pki/cyrus-imapd/<domain>.crt
tls_key_file: /etc/pki/cyrus-imapd/server.key
tls_ca_file: /etc/pki/cyrus-imapd/gd_intermediate_bundle.crt

(I think this one is only for authorizing inbound client certs)
tls_ca_path: /etc/ssl/certs

My gd_intermediate_bundle.crt contains the 2 intermediates and the root 
certs in PEM format, cat'd together.  Order shouldn't be significant, 
but in mine, the order is (by cert subject):
CN=Go Daddy Secure Certification Authority/serialNumber=07969287
C=US, O=The Go Daddy Group, Inc., OU=Go Daddy Class 2 Certification 
Authority
L=ValiCert Validation Network, O=ValiCert, Inc., OU=ValiCert Class 2 
Policy Validation Authority, 
CN=http://www.valicert.com//emailAddress=info <at> valicert.com

Basically listed in the 'correct' order of the chain.

To Kevin's point about the private key, I agree that you should remove 
the passphrase from your key.  It will only cause complications with 
startup.

Hope this helps,
-Chris

Problems with NNTP access

Hello all,

I'm getting some odd errors from Cyrus trying to access mailboxes via
NNTP, and I'm hoping you can help out.  The basic symptoms are that
the mailboxes should up in an NNTP LIST command, but trying to select
the via GROUP results in an a "unknown error":

 LIST
 215 List of newsgroups follows:
 sample 0 1 y
 .
 GROUP sample
 411 No such newsgroup (Unknown error: 0)

Cyrus doesn't appear to log anything regarding this failure.  In my
imap.conf, I have:

partition-news: /var/spool/news
newsspool: /var/spool/news
newsprefix: news

And I created the mailbox like this:

cm news.sample
sam news.sample anyone post

And in /var/spool/imap/news I see:

 drwx------  2 cyrus  cyrus  5 Mar  1 23:36 /var/spool/imap/news/sample/

Oh good - someone who actually USES NNTP!

Can you please create a bug report at bugzilla.cyrusimap.org, with a copy of the config files (imapd.conf
and cyrus.conf) you're using, and a summary of the traffic.

I didn't have any NNTP users to test when putting 2.4.x together, so it will be good to get this fixed.

Thanks,

Bron.

We tested it and we're running 2.4.x nntpd in production now.  I thought I had mentioned that to you, but I
guess not.  Let me know if you need me to test anything for you.

mailbox reconstruct and empty inbox

Hello,
a user has lost for mistake a part of his own emails

so I have restored all of them from tape to a different directory location
so the original user was

/var/spool/imap/u/user/user1

the restore went in

/var/spool/imap/u/user/user2

and I created s new cyrus user

cm  user.user

after this i reconstructed the new mailbox as cyrus user and also the quota

reconstruct -r -f user.user2

quota -f user.user2

the mailbox is reconstructed succesfully and I can see the dump with

ctl_mboxlist -d

i can see the new user.user2 mailbox with subfolders

the problem is that when I try to access to the new mailbox with IMAP 
client (thunderbird or whatever)

Great - I'll have a look at it.  Might not get to it today, but I'll do it as soon as I can.

All user's mail marked as junk

Hello,
We have one user for whom all incoming mail is immediately marked as junk. This is happening no matter which email client she uses: Thunderbird, eGroupware (web interface). So I'm assuming it is not the function of a filter applied at the client, but rather on the server.
this is an older installation of Cyrus, (2.2.12) on CentOS. This is the first issue I've seen as a server problem in the 5+ years it has been in use.
I've done a reconstruct on the user's Inbox but it made no difference
Any help as to what is going on/ how to correct is appreciated. Thanks!
