Users (email accounts) are managed in
/tmp/docker-mailserver/postfix-accounts.cf. The best way to manage accounts is to use the reliable
setup.sh script. Or you may directly add the full email address and its encrypted password, separated by a pipe:
In the example above, we've added 2 mail accounts for 2 different domains. Consequently, the mail server will automatically be configured for multi-domains. Therefore, to generate a new mail account data, directly from your docker host, you could for example run the following:
docker run --rm \ -e MAIL_USERemail@example.com \ -e MAIL_PASS=mypassword \ -it mailserver/docker-mailserver:latest \ /bin/sh -c 'echo "$MAIL_USER|$(doveadm pw -s SHA512-CRYPT -u $MAIL_USER -p $MAIL_PASS)"' >> config/postfix-accounts.cf
You will then be asked for a password, and be given back the data for a new account entry, as text. To actually add this new account, just copy all the output text in
config/postfix-accounts.cf file of your running container.
doveadm pw command lets you choose between several encryption schemes for the password.
doveadm pw -l to get a list of the currently supported encryption schemes.
Changes to the accounts list require a restart of the container, using
supervisord. See #552.
imap-quotais enabled and allow clients to query their mailbox usage.
- When the mailbox is deleted, the quota directive is deleted as well.
- Dovecot quotas support LDAP, but it's not implemented (PR are welcome!).
