Hi all,

I have a simple but well running dovecot configuration attached below.

Now I want to change some things. What I need is an IMAP-Server which
restricts the user to the following:

- no folder createable
- no messages deleteable

How to get what I want?

My Version: Debian x86 Squeeze, Dovecot 1:1.2.15-7.

Many thanks in advance!



protocols = imaps
disable_plaintext_auth = yes
shutdown_clients = yes
log_timestamp = "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S "

ssl = yes
ssl_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem
ssl_key_file = /etc/ssl/private/dovecot.pem

mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
mail_privileged_group = mail

mbox_write_locks = fcntl dotlock

auth default {
  mechanisms = plain
  passdb shadow {
  userdb passwd {
