MultidropPOP3SSLRetriever not working after update to 7.5

NethServer Version: 7.5.1804
Module: getmail

Hi all,

I have a MultidropPOP3SSLRetriever configured:

type = MultidropPOP3SSLRetriever
server =
username =
password = ******
envelope_recipient = delivered-to:2

type = MDA_external
path = /usr/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-lda
arguments = ("-e","-d","%(recipient)")
user = vmail
group = vmail


It worked fine, but after update to 7.5.1804 mail is not delivered to alias addresses anymore.
Anyone with the same problem? (And a solution? :slight_smile: )


Congrats to your Nethserver anniversary!
With Nethserver 7.5 mail2 was introduced, do you use nethserver-mail or nethserver-mail2?
I assume you use this patch. Did you edit the /var/lib/getmail/mail@server.cfg directly?
It’s templated so your changes will be overwritten. It would be better to use a custom template.

I think I’m using mail, because mail2 is in the “available” list. :slight_smile:

Should have checked my getmail config before I did the update. It’s just a small home server with a few users, so I think I’m going to use the multisorter patch again.

You may check the installed mail packages on command line with rpm -qa "nethserver-mail*"
