Ah. I thought notifyd was just for mail notifications, not sieve too.
I was misled by this entry in imapd.conf(5):
Unix domain socket that the new mail notification daemon listens
So I didn't enable notifyd when installing. Now it's running hunky
Might I suggest some changes so others don't suffer the same fate?
1. change the description of notifysocket in imapd.conf(5) to be
applicable to more than new mail notification:
old: Unix domain socket that the new mail notification...
new: Unix domain socket that the notification daemon listens on.
2. Add a debug message that says that the notification daemon could not
be contacted so the notification is being dropped on the floor. That
way the problem would have been less silent.
3. The notification sent by sieve has the subject "New mail
notification." That's a little strange. Is there any way to
change the subject so it doesn't overlap with actual new mail
notifications? The Sieve notification could be sent for any
4. master/conf/normal.conf, make notifyd sound a bit more critical:
change: # this is only necessary if using notifications
# notify cmd="notifyd" ...
to : # this is necessary when using notifications
notify cmd="notifyd" ...
Why not enable notifyd by default? Proper notification is a rather
important part of sieve filtering isn't it?
Anyhow, I'm glad it works. Thanks for your help. And for Cyrus!
