mjhas/dovecot — version 1.0.1 Aug 13th 2014


master branch: Build Status

This is the dovecot module. It provides installation and configuration routines using Puppet.

Simplest Configuration:

include dovecot

It will just install the dovecot-imapd package and ensure that dovecot is running.

Real World Configuration:

include dovecot 

class { dovecot::ssl:
  ssl          => 'yes',
  ssl_keyfile  => '/etc/ssl/private/example_privatekey.pem',
  ssl_certfile => '/etc/ssl/certs/example_server.pem',
  ssl_ca       => '/etc/ssl/certs/CAcert_chain.pem'
include dovecot::sieve
class { dovecot::master:
  postfix    => yes

class { dovecot::postgres:
  dbname     => 'dbname',
  dbpassword => 'dbpassword',
  dbusername => 'dbuser',
include dovecot::mail

class { dovecot::lda: 
  postmaster_address => ''
include dovecot::imap
include dovecot::base
include dovecot::auth

Something more fancy.
