I have a postfix server running on my CentOS 7 machine.
I managed to configure the postfix server to use my LDAP server to retrieve accounts and it works fine, emails are received and saved to a mailbox file.
I use Dovecot as an IMAP server. They work together nicely for all users, except for the ones that have aliases.
The problem is that Dovecot is looking for the mailbox file with the user’s
maildrop attribute (which is of course unique). However, the mailbox file created by Postfix is a list of all
For example, let’s suppose a user with
cn=user, maildrop=user, mail=user, mail=alias.
In this case, the mailbox file created by Postfix will be called
user,alias, while Dovecot will look for a file called
Now of course, I could start to find out how to make Dovecot look for a file called
user,alias, but this would mean that every time a new alias is added to an account, all of the emails will not be recallable until that alias is deleted.
So what I need help with is to configure Postfix to call the mailbox file
user, even when
mail=user has multiple aliases.
