SOGo 5.0.0 needs testers

Good news a new version of SOGo :slight_smile:


is it christmas ?

The Inverse team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of SOGo v5.0.0. This is a major release of SOGo which focuses on new features, various enhancements and improved stability over previous versions.

Version 5 of SOGo brings many great features such as two-factor authentication to secure your account (sponsored by Gandi), mail identities to easily switch between your signatures, desktop notifications for new messages, events and tasks alarms, SSL/TLS support for SMTP, and packages for RHEL/CentOS 8 and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

INFO: Done(sogo-5.0.0-1.2.ge470e57.ns7.src.rpm) Config(nethserver-7-x86_64) 5 minutes 20 seconds
INFO: Results and/or logs in: .
INFO: Cleaning up build root ('cleanup_on_success=True')

available for testing, I needed to change the spec file of sogo

yum update sogo\* sope\* --enablerepo=nethforge-testing

what I have tested on my main server

desktop notification
multiple identity
2fa with GA

Please upgrade and test



Updated and have confirmed 2fa and multiple identities works!

How is an administrator supposed to control what identity/alias will be available to end users so they are not just adding whatever they feel like?

need to check sogo doc

I have been reading this morning on their docs and still can’t find any mention of 2fa, desktop notifications or identities. I assume most of this is bleeding edge new-ish and I would advise some to be careful. Their 2fa implementation for instance does not generate any backup codes nor does it validate that the 2fa input before allowing the end user to enable/save their 2fa secret.

true we did a better job :smiley:


4 posts were split to a new topic: Single sign on think tank

Maybe this should be asked on the user mailling list of sogo

Hi @stephdl,

I found a little error after installation of 5.0.0. There seems to be a little conflict between fail2ban when I click the safe-button (“the disk”) after changing user settings, e.g. when I activate 2FA.


Best regards


will try to reproduce, fun

I cannot reproduce sorry

This is my list of active jail

[root@prometheus ~]# fail2ban-client status 
|- Number of jail:	28
`- Jail list:	apache-auth, apache-badbots, apache-fakegooglebot, apache-modsecurity, apache-nohome, apache-noscript, apache-overflows, apache-scan, apache-shellshock, dovecot, dovecot-nethserver, ejabberd-auth, httpd-admin, mysqld-auth, openvpn, pam-generic, pam-generic-nethserver, phpmyadmin, postfix, postfix-ddos, postfix-sasl-abuse, recidive, roundcube-auth, rspamd, sieve, sogo-auth, sshd, vsftpd

Could you reformulate please, not sure to undestand, or please take some screenshot

maybe the logs can help us, check sogo, fail2ban and messages logs

Let me formulate it differently:

It works, but the error message appears whenever I press the save button within settings.

I will send you a PM.

Best regards

Do you have some sieve rules inside SOGo (or whatever other imap client) to sort your email ?

Hi Steph,

no, I do not think so - where / how can I find out?

Best regards

Hi Stephan, sorry for jumping in late and thank you for the update.

Updated a test-vm. No erreor in sogo.log, yum.log or messages. Fail2ban with sogo-auth jail is enabled.
Login possible and no misbehavior to see.

Looked so good, that I updated my prodution machine. Same here. Everythings seems to work.
Again no erreor in sogo.log, yum.log or messages.
Processtatus is active and no message!

Stay well and healthy! Keep your perfect working! Thanks again! :+1: :smiley:


an imap client like thunderbird, roundcubemail, SOGo, probably rainloop and webtop can sort the email when receiving by a sieve rule.

It is a rule by sender, topic, etc to move the email to a specific folder

I invoke this feature since 2010 at least :smiley:

Thank you @stephdl and @Neustradamus for the heads up
