View Full Version : [ubuntu] could not find sieve plugins

April 13th, 2012, 05:54 AM

I wonder if someone can help me out. I run a machine running on Ubuntu Server 10.04 with postfix, dovecot 1.2.9, ldap and squirrelmail. I was trying to install sieve so that I can add a vacation option on the squirrelmail. I have installed avelsieve for squirrelmail from the synaptic package manager, but I could not find sieve.

So I went to download dovecot-1.2-sieve-0.1.19 from dovecot LDA website. However, I am stuck when trying to run

./configure --with-dovecot=path
as I am still getting used to the linux system.

My dovecot config file sits in /etc/dovecot. So when I run that ./configure command, I received error message saying configure: error: dovecot-config not found. Of course, it could not find the dovecot-config in /etc/dovecot because the config file is named dovecot.conf. So I am very confused as what to do.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
