Now compatible with

  • OS X Server 10.8.3+ (Mountain Lion, Server app 2.x)
  • OS X Server 10.9.x (Mavericks 3.x)
  • OS X Server 10.10.+ (Yosemite 4.x)

This release includes

  • Roundcube version 1.0.3 installed as a WebApp
  • CardDav Integration
  • ManageSieve Plugin (mail filters, vacation reply)
  • Updated database backend, no longer dependent Postgres
  • Mcrypt included

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/

    You need to go back to exactly the way things were before.
    In your case, sounds like you should have 10.9.4 and Server 3.1.2
    A clone made before the udpates were downloaded and applied would have a working copy.
    I assume your postgres data is stored on your startup drive? if its not on the internal, then it would have been upgraded with your server app upgrade (the upgrade fails) then it wouldn't work even if you roll-back. You would need to roll-back your data in this case also.
    Sound like you simply have a non-matching OS/

    everything works fine with this installer!
    Thanks a lot, because 10.9.5 + Server upgrade brokes the webmail.

    Where can i find documentation about setting up vacation reply?
    I've found how it can be set up

  • Hi All,

    I was wondering if this needs to be installed in the same server as the mail server so that sieve rules work correctly. Our mail server is still running on a 10.6 server, but we are moving away from it slowly, web was one of the first to go, thus we want to install round cube, Can someone tell me if the manageSieve plugin will be able to handle the rules on our mail server? ( 10.6 )

    Yes, roundcube will run on a machine other than your server including the ability to add/edit filters.

    Port 4190 must be open from roundcube server to mail server.

    You'll need to adjust imap/smtp settings here:
    Adjust the managesieve plugin config

    If you are using carddav, edit the roundcube carddav plugin config
    If you are NOT using carddav, disable the roundcube carddav plugin with
    sudo perl -p -i -e "s/'managesieve', 'carddav'/'managesieve'/g" /usr/local/topicdesk/roundcube/WebApp/config/

    Everything works great except for the vacation/filter. I have set it up (with alternate e-mail), but do not receive a reply most of the times I'm testing. Why is this? I can see the test mails pop in, but the answer is in most cases not being sent.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi again.

    If I send from different e-mail addresses, I get 1 reply per address, but if I send another I do not get a response. Is this how it should work?

    Hi there !

    First of all, thanks for bringing back roundcube to Server 4.0 !
    I have an issue when trying to send an email, I get a SMTP 454 error (relay access denied), as if roundcube was external to my server. I haven't had a chance to look closer at the installation (I'm currently away, with no conneciton to the server).

    Has anyone seen this behavior ?

    Mac Mini running 10.10.1 and Server 4 with the latest topicdesk Roundcube 1.0.3 script install. I can't seem to get Search results to return anything unless I have "Entire Message" chosen in the search filters drop down menu. Anyone else seeing this issue or is it just me? Any thoughts on where to go to begin to correct things?
