notify_status plugin (v2.2.33+)

This plugin updates a dict every time a mailbox changes. The status can contain total message count and unseen count. It will update key priv/status/<mailbox name>.

Configuration

mail_plugins = $mail_plugins notify notify_status

dict {
  notify_status = driver:args
}

# optional
service dict {
  unix_listener dict {
     #group = vmail
     # or
     #mode = 0777
  }
} 

plugin {
 notify_status_dict = proxy::notify_status
 # if you want some other syntax, available keys are username, mailbox, messages and unseen
 #notify_status_value = {"messages":%%{messages},"unseen":%%{unseen}}
 # limit mailboxes that are updated, most common is probably setting this to INBOX
 #notify_status_mailbox = pattern1
 # you can specify additional patterns
 #notify_status_mailbox2 = pattern2/*
