  • CardDav Integration
  • ManageSieve Plugin (mail filters, vacation reply)
  • Updated database backend, no longer dependent Postgres

If you are upgrading from a previous version

This installation replaces your previous version. Any custom roundcube configuration, user preferences or updates to graphics (logo) are not retained. Your previous installation is backed up in this directory.


A note about Carddav

If carddav is enabled on your server, the installer will read your carddav settings and apply those settings to the Roundcube carddav plugin.

If you don't use carddav on your server, you can disable the roundcube plugin with:

   sudo perl -p -i -e "s/'managesieve', 'carddav'/'managesieve'/g" /usr/local/topicdesk/roundcube/WebApp/config/

  • I've installed and set up Roundcube on 2 OS X servers now. Everything works great with one exception.
    Not really a fault of the installer but still an issue I hope someone can help me with.
    I'd like to get shared folders set up on the mail server and don't know how to do it with 10.10.
    When I had 10.5 (I think) I used SirAdmin to create and share folders for cyradmin.

    Can anyone tell me how to set them up and expose them in Roundcube?

  • Sorry to post another question right away, but I just tried to upgrade via your instructions and got these errors:

    David - Post exactly what steps you took.
    Make sure you run from the NEW version which should remain in your Downloads folder.
    Don't manually copy any files.
    Your existing version needs to be running for an upgrade to work.

    I don't have vetted (postable) instructions.
    Generic instructions for dovecot 2.x will work, the files are just in different location:

    DEFINITELY backup and test before upgrading to Server App 5.0.3 if you are using the topicdesk install of roundcube. There seems ot be a major change in how server deals with it's default apps (directing them through port 34543 instead of 443 and 34580 instead of 80 so your default site redirection to roundcube keep adding a :34543 after the domain name before the /webmail in the url. Not sure of a clean fix so far. I've got a manageable solution in place by configuring a new website in the server app and setting it to port 443 with some changes to the apache .conf files for the sites themselves. Apple again with a MAJOR change that is undocumented to users before the upgrade is widely available. Test test test test and have a solid backup.

    We are in the process of testing it with Server 5 on Yosemite and El Capitan. There is no ETA yet, but I'd think in about 2-3 weeks. When ready, we will post it on our site, tweet about it and send out a newsletter.

    I am experiencing some issues on OSX 10.11.1 and Server 5.0.15. Have to add a '/' to the end of the URL to get it to work which has been reported before and also 'vacation' filters that have been disabled continue to function until the filter is actually deleted.
