The applications team at Eucalyptus and Lavender, Inc. has been getting a lot of emails with the subject “spam” in their applications user mailbox. You have been asked to create a filter so that any messages with “spam” in the subject are moved directly to the trash.
To complete this lab:
– Create a file in the `/home/cloud_user` directory named `.dovecot.sieve`.
– Add a rule that will send any messages containing the word “spam” in the subject line to the trash.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Install Dovecot and Configure the Mail Location
dovecot-pigeonholepackages. Configure the Dovecot mail location. Tell Postfix to deliver mail using Dovecot, and restart the Postfix and Dovecot services.
- Configure Dovecot to Use Sieve and Add a Sieve Script
Configure Dovecot to use Sieve and autocreate any mailboxes that are needed to file mail into. Create a Sieve script that files any mail for the cloud_user that contains the subject "spam" into the Trash folder. Then restart the Dovecot service.
