== Fedora Core and RHEL (and CentOS/Scientific Linux/...) ==
Fedora Core includes dovecot since the first release, RHEL since RHEL4. Up to FC5 and RHEL4 the versions included are

|| '''RHEL4''' || dovecot-0.99.11-2.EL4.1 ||
|| Fedora Core 6 || dovecot-1.0-0.beta8.2 (1.0.beta8) ||
|| '''Fedora Core 5''' || dovecot-1.0-0.beta8.2.fc5 (1.0.beta8) ||
|| Fedora Core 4 || dovecot-0.99.14-8.fc4 ||
|| Fedora Core 3 || dovecot-0.99.14-2.FC3 ||
|| Fedora Core 2 || dovecot-0.99.13-4.FC2 ||
|| Fedora Core 1 || dovecot-0.99.10.5-0.FC1 ||


Doing a fresh install of Fedora Core 2 and later, Dovecot will be installed as the default IMAP server. If you're upgrading from Fedora Core 1, see /FedoraUpgrade.

If you don't have Dovecot already installed, use:

Line 11: Line 32:
Dovecot comes with Fedora Core. To start the dovecot daemon and ensure it starts with each system boot run

{{{
service dovecot start
chkconfig dovecot on }}}

=== RPMs of 1.0 rc and beta versions ===
There are two sources for getting package for 1.0 betas:

 * [http://ATrpms.net/ ATrpms.net] under http://ATrpms.net/name/dovecot/ (packages are in the bleeding section), and
 * [http://fedora.ivazquez.net/yum/ Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams' repo] (place http://fedora.ivazquez.net/yum/ivazquez.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d)

ATrpms has packages for all Fedora Core versions and RHEL 3 and 4, ivazquez has packages for FC4 and FC5. Other than that the packages should have mostly equivalent functionality.

=== Building your own rpms ===
If you want to rebuild the rpms using ATrpms' src.rpm, use this command (example for RHEL4/CentOS4):

{{{
# rpmbuild --rebuild --define 'atrelease() %1.el4.at' dovecot-1.0-0_10.99.beta7.el4.at.src.rpm}}}

== SUSE ==
Dovecot ships with SUSE for quite some time. Upto 10.0 SUSE shipped with 0.99.xx. SUSE 10.1 will have 1.0-beta3, including [:LDA:LDA support].

{{{
yast -i dovecot
chkconfig dovecot on
rcdovecot start }}}

By default ssl disabled. so you need to create an SSL certificitate and than enable it in the dovecot config. For your private server you can do:

{{{
cd /usr/share/doc/packages/dovecot/
sh mkcert.sh
sed -i -e 's|ssl_disable = .*|ssl_disable = no|' /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
rcdovecot restart }}}

== FreeBSD ==
{{{
cd /usr/ports/mail/dovecot; make install }}}

== OpenBSD ==
{{{
cd /usr/ports/mail/dovecot; make install }}}

== NetBSD and DragonFly ==
{{{
cd /usr/pkgsrc/mail/dovecot; make install }}}

== Mac OS X Darwinports ==
{{{
port install dovecot }}}
