Maintenance Notice: Hosted Mail Boxes

Date: Saturday, August 16, 2008
Time: 10:00 PDT


Work to be Performed

The Roller Network will be performing a major version upgrade of the Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server that serves mail boxes on the following servers:

mailbox.rollernet.us
imap.rollernet.us
pop3.rollernet.us

Dovecot will be upgraded to version 1.1.2 in order to introduce the Sieve mail filtering service to our hosted mail box accounts. We expect the upgrade to take about 5 to 10 minutes. Once updated, Sieve (and managesieve) will be enabled.


Impact

After this upgrade, there may be IMAP or POP3 errors while Dovecot updates index files for the first time. We have found these errors to be temporary during testing.


Updates

See the forums for updates on this maintenance notice.

Dovecot has been upgraded to version 1.1.2. We did not see any errors in the logs immediately following the upgrade, but we will continue to watch them for the next several hours.

We are able to access our own mail boxes on the system.
