Hello, I'm trying to configure sieve plugin on my mail server so that people can do mail filtering (and mostly vacation notification) on their account. The mail server is running fine since 5 years and is based on :- sendmail- dovecot- roundcube It serves 2 differents domains. I've recently installed pigeonhole for fc17, and managed to configure managesieve plugin in roundcube successfully. Users can now manage filters from roundcube. The problem is that filters are not applied when new mails arrives. I've modified dovecot.conf to activate sieve plugin, and the configuration is as follow : # dovecot -n# 2.1.16: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf# OS: Linux 3.8.13-100.fc17.x86_64 x86_64 Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle) log_path = /var/log/dovecot.logmail_debug = yesmail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%umanagesieve_notify_capability = mailtomanagesieve_sieve_capability = fileinto reject envelope encoded-character vacation subaddress comparator-i;ascii-numeric relational regex imap4flags copy include variables body enotify environment mailbox date ihavembox_write_locks = fcntlnamespace inbox {  inbox = yes  location =   mailbox Drafts {    special_use = \Drafts  }  mailbox Junk {    special_use = \Junk  }  mailbox Sent {    special_use = \Sent  }  mailbox "Sent Messages" {    special_use = \Sent  }  mailbox Trash {    special_use = \Trash  }  prefix = }passdb {  driver = pam}plugin {  sieve = ~/.dovecot.sieve  sieve_dir = ~/sieve}protocols = imap pop3 lmtp sieveservice imap-login {  service_count = 0}service lmtp {  executable = lmtp -L}service pop3-login {  service_count = 0}ssl_cert = </etc/pki/dovecot/certs/dovecot.pemssl_key = </etc/pki/dovecot/private/dovecot.pemuserdb {  driver = passwd}protocol lmtp {  info_log_path = /var/log/dovecot-lmtp.log  mail_plugins = " sieve"}protocol lda {  mail_plugins = " sieve"}   In /etc/ I've this configured :# cat /etc/mail/

# file: /etc/procmailrc
# system-wide settings for procmail
SENDMAIL="/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -t"

I think I'm missing some parameters somewhere, but the question is... where ? so any help would be appreciated. RegardsFranck.
