WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

 

IMAP Components

H-Sphere IMAP Server is represented with two components:

Courier-IMAP is a standalone IMAP server that can be used with H-Sphere Qmail server to provide IMAP access to Maildirs.

Courier-IMAP is included into H-Sphere mail system by default.

 

Installation/Updates

H-Sphere IMAP is normally installed by the H-Sphere server installation script as outlined in the Adding Servers document and updated with H-Sphere updates.

Alternatively, H-Sphere mail service can be set up from sources.

 

IMAP Server Startup

Courier-IMAP server is started automatically with H-Sphere by running the following commands:
Linux:

/sbin/chkconfig --level 2345 courier-imapd on
/etc/rc.d/init.d/courier-imapd start
/etc/rc.d/init.d/courier-imapd-ssl start
FreeBSD:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/courier-imapd.sh start
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/courier-imapd-ssl.sh start

In order for IMAP SSL to start, SSL certificate must be uploaded through the Control Panel.

 

Configuring IMP with IMAP

If you configure IMP to work with IMAP:

  1. Log into the CP server as the cpanel user.
  2. Open the hsphere.properties file:
    vi ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/hsphere.properties
  3. Add the following line:
    MAIL_PROTOCOL=imap
  4. Restart H-Sphere.

 

IMAP before SMTP Authentication

hsphere-imap-3.x came out with IMAP before SMTP Authentication support. hsphere-imap-4.x was built based on Courier-IMAP 4.0x where authentication works through a separate service. This disabled IMAP before SMTP Authentication in hsphere-imap-4.x. In H-Sphere 2.4.3 Patch 4 which includes hsphere-imap-4.0.4-1 we are getting this functionality back.
