This documentation is for Dovecot v2.x, see wiki1 for v1.x documentation.

Welcome plugin

Requires v2.2.25+. Call a script when the user logs in for the first time. This is specifically done when the INBOX is (auto)created. The scripts are called similarly to quota warning scripts.

plugin {
  welcome_script = welcome %u
  # By default we run the script asynchronously, but with this option we
  # wait for the script to finish.
  #welcome_wait = yes

service welcome {
  executable = script /usr/local/bin/
  user = dovecot
  unix_listener welcome {
    user = vmail

mail_plugins = $mail_plugins welcome
