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.
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.
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:
/sbin/chkconfig --level 2345 courier-imapd on
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:
- Log into the CP server as the cpanel user.
- Open the hsphere.properties file:
- Add the following line:
- 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.
